Wine Making: Tavel is a rose wine which follows a winemaking closely related to a red winemaking: with long macerations from 48 to 72 hours. After pressing, 10 to 15 days fermentation is led at low temperatures (13°-14°).
Tavel is issued from a blend of free-run juice, which carries aromas, fruits, freshness and acidity, and of first-press juice which protects structure, richness and spices.
This skillful blend gives rise to Tavel wine, «1st Rosé of France».
