About Rhone Tavel

About Rhone Tavel
Tavel is one of the world's benchmarks of rosé wines, the other being Provence rosé. The wines are generally made from red Syrah and Cinsualt using a combination saignée (fermenting early, pink free-run juice from the red grapes' maceration) and more extended skin contact of the must with the red grape skins. This vinification technique gives the wines more richness, tannins, and a very distinctive orange-amber color.
