Terroir: A successful partnership that resulted from a kind of online dating. We are more than happy about that, because the wine cooperative Les Quatre Tours is emblematic of its symbolic attachment to the Coteaux d’Aix-en-Provence region and formidable art of living! Driven by their manifested core values – cooperation, quality and service – vintners from Venelles and the surrounding area have been producing complex quality wines since the end of the 19th century, inviting pleasure and conviviality with their new interpretations. The co-produced Rosé 2020 is already the second edition in our Kolonne Null collection with the French and completely in line with the way of life: à savoir vivre!
Ageing: De-alcoholisation by vacuum distillation to gently remove the alcohol down to a maximum of 0.3%. The thermal vacuum has the advantage of allowing the alcohol to escape at a low temperature of 30°C. This method allows the structure of the original wine to be kept intact while delicately separating the alcohol. The process is immediately followed by aroma recovery which captures the natural aromas from the wine. This preserves the diverse character and overall style of each individual wine. No artificial flavours or colouring are used
Color: Light salmon pink
Nose: Fine nuances of apricots, raspberries and floral notes
Palate: Lively smoothness and mineral freshness reflect the harmonious, French character. An exquisite companion to cold Mediterranean starters, bouillabaisse or grilled fish

Kolonne Null relies on de-alcoholization by vacuum distillation in order to gently remove the alcohol from the selected wines down to a maximum residual alcohol content of 0.3%. The thermal vacuum has the advantage of allowing the alcohol to escape at a low temperature of 30°C. This method allows the structure of the original wine to be kept intact while delicately separating the alcohol.
The process is immediately followed by aroma recovery which captures the natural aromas from the wine. This preserves the diverse character and overall style of each individual wine. No artificial flavours or colouring are used. The sweetness that is diminished through the de-alcoholization process is replaced with a subtle amount of natural sugars. Depending on the type of wine, CO2 to added to impart a sparkling character.
