2018 Grenache, Cinsault 'Le Saint Andre'Saint Andre de Figuiere
Located just east of Bandol is one of the newest appellations of Provence called La Londes des Maures. Here the earth shimmers from the very strong presence of mica-schist and quartz in the rocks of the region. In 1979, to preserve this exceptional site, Saint André de Figuière chose to convert to organic production (Ecocert certification). All the rose wines are vinified and aged in temperature controlled stainless steel to keep the freshness of both the aromas and the fruit so typical of the wines of this region. These are pristine wines displaying the fine mineral nuances imparted by this exceptional site. The wines are made to drink for their freshness and they perfectly suit warmer climates like Provence and much of Australia.
Made from a blend of Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah and Cabernet. Pale, salmon pink hue. Charming nose of summer berries fused with herbaceous and citrus characters. Typical Provence style on the palate that starts with a silky texture of summer red berry fruits with added white peach, uplifting acidity that adds freshness and a mouth watering balance that flows through onto a long lingering red currant finish. One of those wines that you don’t need to think about or obsess over, just gentle, lacy, full of pretty fruit and faint minerals. Chill it down, un-screw the cap, pour a long glass and simply enjoy.
