Wine Profile
Wine Profile / Tasting Notes
Cavè is a rosè wine obtained from the maceration of red grapes vinified as you would do for a white wine. Beautiful light cherry color. The nose is mostly floral with refined and pleasant scent of rose petals and wild violets. On the palate, it tastes like pomegranate and blackcurrant. Fresh and elegant taste with good acidity and balance.
Vineyard Notes
Predominantly sandy soils derived from decaying granite with a light clayish layer. Training system: Espalier.
Production Notes
Very limited production: 3.300 bottles. The grapes harvested late in the evening, are immediately destemmed and subjected to skin maceration for 8 hours overnight. The grapes are then pressed and the must is slowly fermented in stainless steel tanks under controlled temperature. After the fermentation, the wine ages in a cool oxygen-free environment for seven months.
Winemaker Notes
This is a rose wine obtained by from the overnight maceration of the grapes. Cherry pink color, fresh scent of spring, enveloping like a warm night, light an elegant as the flight of a falcon.
Food & Wine Pairing
Excellent as an aperitif and as a wine for any meal. Accompanies well any kind of fish dish, especially soups, couscous and fried fish. Serve cold at 6°-8° C / 42° - 46° F.
