Producer: Chateau de l’Aumerade
The Château de l’Aumérade is a 400 year old estate located in in the heart of Provence. Originally belonging to the Aumerat family, the traditional Mas property dates back to the Renaissance period. In 1594, the Duke of Sully, Henry VI’s finance minister, presented the Château with a Mulberry tree and Plane trees for their luxurious gardens, as a gift for supplying the Royal Court. In 1930, a young Henri Fabre and his wife Charlotte, fell in love with the Château de l’Aumérade and it has been in the family ever since. Château Aumerade holds the Haute Valeur Environmentale (HVE) certification, which officially recognises the environmental performance of winegrowers, including biodiversity conservation, plant protection strategies, managed fertiliser use and water resource management.
Located just a few miles from the coast, the vines receive cooling ventilation from the salty Mistral winds blowing in from the sea. The 2019 sees fantastic new packaging and an update on the name. Aumérade Style is the quintessential Provence rosé – a blend of Grenache 40%, Cinsault 30% & Syrah 30% with a short time on skins to extract the beautiful pale pink colour and then fermented in stainless steel to preserve a vibrant freshness.
“It has a pale salmon colour with a refreshingly fruity bouquet leading to delicate white spice and mineral flavours on the palate and an elegant finish.”
