"Light shimmering orange. Intense aromas of strawberry, nectarine, honeydew melon and orange zest, with a bright mineral overtone that builds with air. Shows impressive clarity and tension on the palate, offering juicy pit fruit and red berry flavors that are braced by a bitter suggestion of blood orange. Finishes impressively long and silky, with a strong mineral quality and a hint of lavender."
"A subtle balance between structure and finesse, this wine is a perfect illustration of the precision required to make a rosé, the rigorous process that celebrates the flesh of the fruit and the very heart of the grape... The wine is a reflection of the complexity of its limestone hillsides and arid soil; austerity bathed in dazzling sunshine.
The Château de Selle Rosé combines various grape varieties from the Côtes de Provence appellation, including a majority of Grenache creating the delicate colour and vinous character. Cinsault adds softness, Syrah and Mourvèdre bring fruit.
This pale pink wine with golden tints releases fragrances of citrus fruit and orchard flowers enveloped in spice. On the palate, the immediate effect is elegant and open, developing subtle aromas with a lemony edge before a sweet finish of appealing length." - Winery
