Chateau Argadens Bordeaux Rosé, France, 2018

Grapes: Cabernet Franc 60% - Cabernet Sauvignon 25 % - Merlot 15% from 30 year old vines.

Magnificent limpid, pale pink hue. This wine offers up a pleasantly light bouquet of small red-berried fruit and floral scents. At one with it, the palate is elegant, the finish nicely balanced by fine freshness.

The vineyards, on mainly clay-limestone soils, are located along the banks of the Garonne river.

Winemaker notes:

Perfectly ripe grapes are sorted on arrival at the winery to ensure only the best are vinified. They are then put into temperature controlled stainless steel vats and protected from oxidization by keeping them under inert gas. The Merlot undergoes brief pre-fermentation cold maceration (15°C) until the desired colour and fruity aromas have been obtained. The saignée or “bleeding” method is then used, in which the juice is “bled”, i.e. run off, from the vat. In the case of the Cabernets, the direct pressing method is applied, in which the grapes are pressed immediately. The juice is allowed to settle at low temperature for 24 hours. Selected yeast is added to the clarified juice, which is fermented for between 8 and 12 hours (no malolactic fermentation, so that the final wine will keep all its fresh, fruity character). The wine spends a period on fine lees before being fined with bentonite and filtered. 

Drink as an aperitif or with light, summer salads.
