The colour is a delicate rose gold. The nose is a real explosion of aromas from candy, mandarin, pink grapefruit and white peaches. There are also hints of creme caramel and a nice green herbal note. On the palate, the wine is fresh, round and fruity with lots of pink grapefruit and caramel flavors. The finish is dry with lingering notes of tangerine and mandarin. A fun rose for sipping with friends.
Try this wine with smoked salmon, crevettes, moules, melon/parma ham, asian chicken wings, or a summer vegetable pasta, rock melon with ham or even try with a raspberry cheesecake!

In total there are 34 hectares of vines that include seventeen different varieties. The vineyards tend to be on gentle to moderate slopes with an elevation of almost 200 metres. The oldest vines we have were planted in 1955, with intensive plantings in the early 1970s and steady re-developments in the mid 1980s through to 2008. With such a diverse collection of vine ages, varieties, parcels and training systems, uniform management is out of the question! Therefore each parcel's characteristics has to be considered when deciding on how best to manage the vines.The domaine takes a proactive approach to managing the vines, focusing on planning and observing the vines closely for pests or diseases.
The nearby rugged mountains bring cool winds to the estate during the summer and allow slow maturation of the grapes.
The grapes used to make this wine come from a mixture of vineyards that are on gently sloping land near the base of the Cévennes mountains. The soils are calcareous clays with varying amounts of small to medium stones, meaning the vines require no irrigation

Terre des 2 Sources began with the collaboration of two couples and their dream of finding the right land and environment to craft exceptional wines. They found that in the estate just south of the Cevennes mountains with a diversity of soils, slopes and climate. The team: Dr Glen Creasy ( USA), Kristen Creasy ( New Zealand), and Helene Taillefer ( France). They belong to the Outsiders organization, which highlights those wineries who's operators have come from outside the Languedoc region, bringing new ideas and perspective to winegrowing
