Isle Saint Pierre Rosé 750ml
Isle Saint-Pierre is a small island in the middle of the Rhône River, located 25km south of Arles and 15km away from the Mediterranean in the heart of the Camargue region. In 1927, Parisian wine merchant Pierre Chassaing founded Domaine Isle Saint-Pierre and devoted himself to cultivating vines and raising sheep. The proximity to the water means that the island enjoys a coastal climate (with a cooling influence from the nearby bodies of water) and deep, well draining sedimentary soils comprised of sand and silt. The main varietals are Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Arinarnoa (a cross between merlot and petit verdot). Today, fourth generation vigneron Julien Henry farms organically with careful attention paid to the leaf system of the vine. Although the Isle St Pierre wines come from the very southern stretches of France, they display wonderful freshness and aromatic appeal. The rosé harvest undergoes a short skin maceration with complete control of process timing, producing a rosé exclusively from free-run juice. Domaine Isle Saint-Pierre is a lively vibrant quaffer that over deliver at every turn: delicious, easy-drinking wines that are perfect for everyday drinking!
