Organic Grapes!  Winemaker Matthias Wimmer and owner Christian Raimont grow this complex blend of Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault, Grenache Blanc, Rolle, and Mourvedre with more care than most Chateauneuf (and yields more like fine Burgundy!).  The vineyards have been certified organic since 1996, yields are always 30 hectoliters/hectare or less, and grapes harvested by hand.  After a gentle crush and brief time on the skins to add just a pretty touch of color, each lot finishes fermentation in steel before blending for complexity and depth of flavor.

The wine is a lovely pale salmon and rose petal pink in the glass.  Give it a swirl, and you'll find the essence of ripe summer strawberry, juicy watermelon, and crunchy Rainier cherry fruit with subtle accents of crushed rose petal and garrigue.  Bright on entry, silky smooth on the mid-palate, and then bracingly fresh and dry and mineral-laced with bold flavors of ripe peach, red berries and Provençal herb.  Finishes long and fresh with pretty fruit and a hint of chamomile lingering.  This stylish, captivating, pink is wonderfully refreshing on its own but has enough structure to delight with salads, chicken, or grilled seafood.
