- GAVOTY - ROSÉ GRAND CLASSIQUE 2018 - $35:
Domaine Gavoty excels at creating soulful Rosé that is very refreshing. This complex and subtle Rosé is the resultant blend of three grape varieties grown on clay and limestone – Cinsault 10%, Grenache 75% and Syrah 15%. The Rosé Tradition is made out of four grape varieties. The Rolle plays an important role in the style of this Rosé, bringing floral notes, freshness and elegance. This Rosé is made using the Saignée method and the Press method. The Saignée method involves the maceration of the red grape varieties for three to six hours to colour the juice before it is pumped out of the tank. With the press method, the first juice that comes out from the pressed grapes is used to make the Rosé. The two must* types are vinified separately, then blended before bottling. The Press method brings elegance to the Rosé and structure is gained via the Saignée method.
The aromas are floral and contain restrained notes of strawberries and rose flower. The colour is a beautiful light salmon. You can pair it with spicy food, Provençal flavours (olive oil, lemon, garlic, tomatoes etc) and mixed salads. It is a great companion for Asian dishes. Drink now.
