Better known for the likes of its Marmalade Vodka and gin made from cider apples, Herefordshire-based Chase Distillery has launched the second vintage of its Provençal rosé onto the market.
Boasting a pretty salmon pink hue, the wine hails from Château Constantin close to the village of Lourmarin in the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region, which distillery owner William Chase bought three years ago. The 20-hectare site is planted with vines dating back to the ‘60s, with the grapes going into the wine undergoing a 24-hour cold maceration. The 13% abv Williams Chase Rosé 2014 is a blend of equal parts Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault, with the Grenache aged on its lees to give the wine a creamy character.
According to its makers, the wine is “crisp, fresh, fruity and beautifully balanced”, with “stone fruit aromas of white peach, grapefruit, crushed strawberries and herbs”.
