"Les Amandines Tavel comes from a number of different parcels that total 13 ha (32 acres). The soil for the Tavel vines are all three types. The exposure of the vineyards is directly south, ensuring that the grapes get plenty of maturity. Amido's Tavel is made with a blend of 65% Grenache, 20% Cinsault, 10% Syrah and 5% Clairette. It undergoes skin contact for 36 hours to extract maximum aromas. Afterwards it is fermented at a low temperature to preserve freshness to its red fruit aromas. It displays excellent value.
Tasting Notes: Richly colored rosé with cherry, strawberry and a touch of almond flower flavors. Lots of freshness on the palate, and with enough body to match wonderfully with cold pork roast, chicken salad and most picnic fare."
