Mont Gravet Rosé comes from hillside vineyards near the town of Lezignan-Corbieres in the Languedoc region which is located near the warm Mediterranean shoreline in Southern France. The Cinsault grape is also one of the main varietals used in the production of Provence rosé and some of the best reds of the Southern Rhone Valley.
The grapes are harvested at night when the temperature is coolest. After gentle pressing, the skins are left in contact with the juice for the first 24 hours of fermentation during which time the wine gains just enough of the lovely pink color. The juice is then fermented for about 7 days. The finished wine does not go through malolactic fermentation to protect its freshness and acidity and is aged for three months in stainless steel vats where it is stirred regularly on its lees to extract richer flavors.
