This wine is made by our friends at the Chateau de Montfrin in the Southern Rhone. In colloquial French, a “Cherche Midi” or “Noon-Seeker” means someone who is looking to invite themselves in for a free lunch, so this bottle is a perfect tool to have in hand for all the “Cherche Midis” out there. The Cherche Midi wines are made from organic alluvial vineyards between the Gardon and Rhône rivers. The vines are trellised as double cordon which helps to spread out the grape bunches allowing for better aeration and maximum sun exposure. The wines are crafted to be enjoyable and easy to drink straight away, and to offer great value for an organic wine from the south of France.
Direct Press Rosé: This rosé gets its very light color through direct press. Instead of allowing the juice time to soak and gain color from the skins, the grapes are pressed right away, the juice is removed from the skins and the wine is vinified like a white wine. However, due to the pigmentation of the red grape skins, a hint of color will remain in the juice. The wine then undergoes a temperature controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks.
