Very good. Classic.

About This Wine

High-level Provence Rose with a serious edge, the Valfont is a stunning wine.

Pale orange-pinkly coloured, fresh strawberry, pink grapefruit and melon on the fragrant nose. Juicy and sharply focused on the palate, it offers citrus zest and red berry flavours.

The wine finishes dry and racy, delivering firm cut and a lingering touch of bitter orange pith. Everything you want from Provence Rose, well made, elegant and highly drinkable.

 

About Domaine Valfont

Produced in a region located on the east of Lambesc, this area has been owned by Castinel family for over 50 years. Consisting of 27 hectares of vineyards divided into appellation Coteaux d'Aix en Provence, Domaine Valfont is quintessentially Provence.

Nestled amongst the olive groves of the region, the vineyards are a truly picturesque scene. It’s the stuff of Southern Mediterranean lifestyle dreams.

Additional Info

From The Producer

The field is mechanically harvested under cover of darkness during late August in order to shield the grapes from the heat of the sun. The grapes are then separated, and part of the harvest undergoes direct pressing, while the other part is macerated during 7 - 8 hours at low temperature of 7° to 8°C. The two streams of wine liquids then are captured in stainless steel tanks, and further processed by static racking. Hard fermentation lasts around 8-10 days at low temperature of 14°C. This technique enables the preservation of aromas.

 

Blend : Grenache (50%), Cinsault (35%), Syrah (15%)
ABV : 12.5%
Closure : Screw Cap
Drink Until : 2024
Bottle Size : 750ml

"Red fruit, citrus, quite floral too, violets maybe, and some spice. It feels fine and chalky, refreshing red fruits with a subtle blood orange zest bitterness on long clean finish. Very good. Classic." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

FaQs

Do I have to order in dozens? No, please mix it up! You can order wines in any quantity and variation you like. You can order 1 bottle or 50. We challenge you to make the ultimate mixed pack of wine!

Are there volume discounts? No, our pricing is designed to be the best in market already - no marking up and then discounting down! For very large orders (weddings, etc) we are open to negotiating though. Just give us a call.

Do we price match? Yes, within reason. Everyday low & consistent pricing is something we strongly believe in. We want our customers to feel confident they are always getting the best price. If you see a price lower somewhere else let us know and we'll consider matching it. We'll even retrospectively issue you store credit if you have already purchased from us but you see a lower price somewhere later on. Our price match policy can be seen here.

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 1300 668 385 or hello@differentdrop.com and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.

Can I special order a wine you do not sell? If it’s doable, then we’ll make it happen. Just contact us directly via phone, chat or email and we’ll find out for you right away. Please note that in most cases special orders such as these will need to be in full case lots (6 or 12 bottles).
