Fleur de Liz 2008 rosé Vin de Pays de l’Hérault
Fleur de Liz – with delicious flavours of red summer fruits and a good acidity, Fleur de Liz is good to drink all year round.
Varieties: 90% Grenache, 10% Syrah
Terroir: Our parcels are all on rocky well-draining slopes. They are made up of a mix of quartz, schist, granite and marl formed during the Jurassic period.
Yield: 35 hl/ha
Vinification: The grapes were picked by hand into small containers and were destemmed, macerated on skins for 7 hours then pressed in a vertical press. The wine was cool-fermented over 5 weeks (16-18°C°) in a fibreglass tank. The wine was then aged for 5 months in tank before bottling.
Tasting note: The wine is salmon pink. The nose gives off aromas of grenadine, strawberry and raspberry. On the palate, the strawberry is most apparent, with the grenadine and raspberry lingering with the fresh acidity. The wine is good as an aperitif, with salads, or Asian dishes.
