Description Build A Case!
 
The position of Chateau Mas Neuf, half way up the southern flank of the Costieres de Nimes is very special. The exposure to the sun is similar to that found in the Languedoc or Provence, but the proximity of lagoons and the sea allows it to take advantage of warm sea breezes drifting up from the Mediterranean. In summer dew settles during the night and early morning, and temperatures atr 4 to 5 degrees Celsius (8 9 degrees Fahrenheit) cooler than those found further inland.

At the Southern extremity of the Rhone Valley (a very warm region), this unexpected coolness is a real singularity which marks the selection of the most adapted grape varieties and on the style of wine. They call it the "Rhone paradox".

The principal vineyards grouped around the winery have the advantage of being firmly planted on well drained brown fersiallitic soils, with a good proportion of Villafranchian era pebbles from the Durance and the Rhone. This soil ensures that the vines can get regular but moderate supplies of water. The differing depths and composition create micro terroirs with different characteristics, which are enhanced by varying viticultural techniques.

WINEMAKER'S NOTES: A lovely rose displaying a spirited edge of bing cherry, strawberry and notes of blood orange zest; vigorously tangy on the finish.
