Tradition rouge (Côtes-du-Rhône)
Our red wine Côtes-du-Rhône : Tradition
Grenache-base wine blended with Shiraz and Carignan.
Different terroirs compose the Côtes du Rhône appellation : stony soils or clay and limestone subsoil. The maximum yield for this appellation is 51hl/ha.
De-stemmed, crushed and fermented with regular pump overs (two daily over peak fermentation) to extract colour, flavour and tannins. After 3 weeks ‘on skins’ the fermenters are drained off and the skins pressed. Aged in concrete tanks on lees.
- Color: dark red colour, violet fringe.
- Aroma: redcurrants, Morello cherries and fresh red fruits.
- Palate: rounded and full. The tannins are velvety and elegant. The fruit is well present. This is typical of the generous wine that the Côtes du Rhône knows best to make.
Enjoy this wine with chicken fajitas, grilled eggplant moussaka or fresh goat cheese.
