A pale rose petal colour with a glint of peach. This core-of-a- strawberry colour leads to wild strawberries and lychees on the nose. In the mouth it’s citrus fruits, pomelo being the closest (something between a grapefruit and a lemon from Corsica), then gooseberry. Thirst-quenching with the usual freshness, there is also a minerality on the finish.
CHATEAU UNANG – MAGICAL WINES FROM A MAGICAL PLACE! James and Joanna King are both Scottish by descent. They bought the dilapidated, but magical 18th century Chateau Unang in 2001, and a great deal of renovating and replanting followed. This unique domaine is surrounded by oak forests, above the Nesque river bed overlooking the Vaucluse plateau. Sheltered from the Mistral by Mont Ventoux, this is a stunning corner of the Vaucluse, located just outside the pretty village of Malemort du Comtat.. read more
The grape varieties at Unang used for our rosé are positioned around the chateau itself, they benefit from good exposure to the sun ensuring ripe fruit. The soil is free-draining, clay-limestone soil (with the emphasis on limestone), at around 28o metres above sea level. The Cinsault and the Grenache were left in contact with their skins before pressing, while the Syrah was pressed straight after being picked. The fermentation took place at cool temperatures (15-18ºC) over two weeks in stainless- steel.
