FAT bastard Rosé is a blend of Shiraz and Grenache. These grapes were carefully selected to attain a fruit-forward, full-bodied blend that is fresh and lively. The wine is intense pink with purple-blue hues, and the nose is complex and expressive with intense raspberry and strawberry notes.
About the Vineyard
The grapes for the FAT bastard Rosé are sourced from select vineyards in the Languedoc-Roussillon, spanning the banks of the Rhône in the east, Carcassonne in the west, the foothills of the Massif Central in the north, all the way to the Mediterranean coast in the south.
The winemakers work very closely with the growers to determine the date, and sometimes even the hour, to start the harvest. The goal is to seek aromatic ripeness and rich varietal character. Upon arrival at the winery, the grapes go through the crusher-destemmer and are then divided, one part going to the pneumatic press, while the other part is put into stainless steel tanks until the juice reaches the perfect colour. The two parts are then blended and vinified with selected yeasts at controlled temperatures. At the end of alcoholic fermentation, the malolactic fermentation is stopped to keep
freshness and acidity.
