Background

Château du Seuil was acquired by an entrepreneurial Welsh couple, Bob and Sue Watts in 1988. They renovated the Château, built a modern winery and re-established many of the old vineyards. From this point on the wines became known for their very high quality and finesse. Today, Chateau du Seuil is co-owned and managed by Sean and Nicola Allison, following the traditions established by Nicola’s parents Bob and Sue. Chateau du Seuil Rosé is an aromatic and richer style of Rosé. Essentially a blend of two different winemaking methods. It is partially fermented from the free run juice of the red tanks after 24 hours of skin contact (known as “saignee”) and also partially from pressed red juice. In this portion of the blend, red grapes are pressed pneumatically then chilled to a very low temperature to allow for clarification. Alcoholic fermentation occurs entirely in stainless steel tanks. The grapes are grown on terraces of river gravel and sand deposits with a sub soil limestone, clay, iron pan. This unique wine is known for the clear expression of the fruit , clean acidity and its creamy yet refreshing texture on the finish
