IGP Pays d’Óc
100% Cinsault

This crisp, dry rosé is named for an old Occitan folk song.  It sings the song of the Cinsault grape grown at high altitude in white, rocky soils.  A wine that sings of this terroir and sparkles fresh strawberries, citrus and peach flavors in your glass. The minerality on the finish from the limestone soil can make you dream of the far away South of France.
