FLEURS DE PRAIRIE
Fleurs de Prairie translates as "wildflowers," celebrating the beautiful fields of wisteria, lavender, poppy, and sunflowers carpeting the South of France. This wine, sourced from select vineyards that dot the coastal wind-swept hillsides of the region, is a Mediterranean combination of sun, wind, mild water stress, and ocean influence that provide ideal conditions for grapes to ripen to the perfect balance of flavor and freshness. Fleurs de Prairie is crafted in the traditional South of France style with a pale salmon color, delicate flavors of strawberry, rose petals, and herbs, and a bright, refreshing acidity. It is made by the family-owned Les Grands Chais de France.
Fleurs de Prairie is sourced from hand selected vineyards throughout the Languedoc region, some of which have vines that are over 50 years old.
43% Grenache Noir, 40% Syrah, 9% Carignan, 5% Cinsault, 3% Mourvèdre.
Harvested between August and September, the grapes for this elegant wine are direct pressed to ensure a light, fresh style. Grapes are fermented in 100% stainless steel tanks and fermented separately to achieve the best characteristic of each varietal.
Fleurs de Prairie is a pale salmon color, with delicate flavors of red fruit and lemon, and a subtle note of tropical fruits on the finish. Its bright, refreshing acidity makes it a perfect companion with a meal or as an aperitif.
Pair this light-bodied wine with lighter dishes, use the fruit flavors to pair with summer fruits and vegetables, or enjoy with fresh fish or lighter proteins roasted with fresh herbs.
