Birichino Vin Gris Rosé 2020

The Birichino Vin Gris Rosé is composed of the classical varieties associated with a Provençal rosé - Grenache, Cinsault, Mourvèdre and Rolle, sourced in part from 100+ year old vineyards in California. Like the ideal Provençal Rosé the Birichino Vin Gris allies the suggestion of citrus, rosehip, orchard fruits and violet pastilles with the enigmatic imprint of garrigue - the wild herbs which aromatise the Provençal countryside. Aromas of stone fruits, hibiscus, and watermelon dominate the perfume, with the ever delightful Cinsault contributing the violet top note, and a small quantity of particularly fresh and vivid Vermentino from the Napa side of Carneros adding some zest. Entirely the product of a very gentle direct press the Vin Gris is fermented to dryness in one long, sequential fermentation in stainless steel.
