Domaine du Garde Temps Rose Tourbillon 750ml 2012    
Sku: 1833664*

Domaine du Garde Temps Tourbillon Rose is a blend of Grenache, a thin-skinned grape often used to make rose, which imparts elegant aromas of small red fruits and brings roundness and strength to the wine, and Cinsault, a native Provencal variety which counters the strength with freshness, finesse, and fruit. Mourvedre balances the remainder with fine tannins and structure. The 40 to 50 year-old vines have deep roots, traveling down over 30 feet through the schist layer at the surface (that brings great minerality and freshness to the wine) and the clay subsoil (a natural sponge keeping them hydrated).

Tasting notes
A wonderfully clear pale salmon in appearance, the wine reveals in its nose an abundance of fresh fruit, along with almond and spices. In the mouth, it is magnificent: refreshingly cooling, with a zest and a zip and a perfectly cutting acidity. A taste of Provence is a taste of history itself: after all, it was here, some 2600 years ago, that the very first vineyards of France were planted…
