Rosé

Made in Côtes de Provence in the village of Vidauban in a true Provence Rosé style, the 2023 Olema Rosé opens with a nose filled with delicate scents of strawberry, juicy peach and rose petals. On the palate, it delivers a punch of flavor with ripe grapefruit, lemon, and melon notes that lead to a crisp, refreshing finish.

Vintage Notes

The 2023 vintage in Côtes de Provence began with a very dry start to the year, until the heavens opened in May with a downpour of rain that continued into June—during these two months there was double the amount of precipitation compared to a “normal” year. The summer was fairly dry, and temperatures rose as summer turned into fall, resulting in rosé that has nice weight and texture in addition to the classic rosé vibrancy and freshness.

Winemaking Notes

All grapes went direct to press with minimal skin contact leading to the pale copper-salmon color and smooth, viscous texture. The must was fermented cold, preserving the freshness of floral aromatics, and matured in stainless steel, giving vibrant fruit intensity and a long, crisp finish.
