A full-bodied blend of 66% Mourvèdre, 30% Grenache and 4% Syrah bled off like a rosé and then fermented like a white wine, very reminiscent of a rosé from Provence. Dry, with prevailing flavors of strawberry and sweet spice, this Vin Gris is both pleasant enough to sip as an apéritif and bold enough to stand next to a range of food, seafood in particular.
