Château d'Aqueria Tavel Rose 2022
Château d'Aqueria Tavel Rose
The Tavel is made of an interesting mixed variety of grapes: Grenache Noir and Blanc, Clairette, Cinsault, Mourvèdre, Syrah, Bourboulenc and Picpoul.
A rich and full bodied dry rosé with ripe red berry fruits, and a luscious mouthfeel. Great to pair with lamb for something slightly different!
The appellation stipulates that the wine should have a minimum 12 hours and max 24 hours on the skins producing a deep salmon colour, fuller flavour and a minimum of 13.5% alcohol than its Provencal neighbours, so it is a perfect food friendly wine and can easily benefit from ageing.
A delightful family-owned Château just outside the village of Tavel (in the Southern Rhone, west of Chateauneuf-du-Pape), with 70 hectares of vines, all surrounding the Château. Raphaël de Bez represents the new generation now running the estate, with his father Vincent and uncle Bruno de Bez in the background.
Approximately 60% of the vineyard is devoted to Tavel Rosé and they also make small quantities of Lirac Rouge, Lirac Blanc and Côtes du Rhône. A good proportion of the of the vineyard remains wild garrigue which is perfect for the environment.
