La Vieille Ferme Rose - Famille Perrin
Fresh, fruity and colored... The La Vieille Ferme Rosé presents all of the elements of an attractive rosé.
The wine : If you like easy drinking rosé wines, this one is perfectly suiting aperitifs and simple cookery.
Tasting notes : Pretty delicate petal-rose colour. This wine offers an expressive, particularly fruity nose with notes of red fruit and citrus. On the palate, this wine shows a beautiful aromatic richness and a perfect balance between the body and the freshness.
Grapes : Cinsault, Grenache, Syrah
Serving : 10-12°C on hors-d'oeuvres, cold buffets, tomato salads, grilled meat, ... and other summer lunches.
Ageing : The harvest takes place between the last days of August and mid-September, when the grapes have reached optimal maturity. This is defined by analysis and berry tastings. Harvest takes place early in the morning to preserve the freshness of the fruit and avoid oxidisation of the aromas. As soon as the grapes arrive at the winery, they are pneumatically pressed which allows to extract the musts. Fermentation starts after settling and lasts about 15 days in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. After fermentation, the wines are kept in stainless steel vats and slightly fined before bottling.
