Chateau d'Aqueria Tavel Rose 2011

Chateau d'Aqueria Tavel Rose 750ml 2011     
Sku: 1754031*

Grapes of exceptional quality from a noble terroir allow Chateau d’Aqueria to craft a quintessential Tavel, widely appreciated as the finest wine of its appellation. Grapes are handpicked from Chateau d’Aqueria’s own vineyards, which span 163 acres across the sandy slopes of Tavel. The mesoclimate is ideal for cultivating Grenache and crafting crisp, fresh rose wines. Using its cutting-edge weather station located in the heart of the vineyards, Chateau d’Aqueria precisely monitors weather conditions and adjusts vineyard practices accordingly. The grapes are hand harvested and destemmed, followed by a maceration to extract color. The grapes are then pressed and each variety is vinified separately, undergoing temperature-controlled maceration and fermentation in stainless steel vats. The wines see no malolactic fermentation and no oak contact. The winemaker assembles an initial blend in November and then a second blending takes place in January before bottling.

Tasting notes
Vibrant salmon-coral in color; this wine is bone dry, full-bodied and full of fruit on the palate, with the lusciousness and depth that have made the wines of Tavel famous.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 90 points (Jun 2013)
A rich, beautifully done Tavel, the 2011 Chateau d’Aqueria Tavel offers up a vibrant raspberry color to go with pure, clean cherry, red raspberry, mineral and floral like qualities on the nose. Medium-bodied and showing that perfect mix of focus and richness that Tavel does so well, it is an outstanding rose that would be perfect to serve with food. Drink now-2013.

Food pairing
Delicious with shellfish, salad and poultry.
