A masterful blend of Grenache, Cinsault, Syrah, Mourvèdre, and Rolle grapes, RUMOR is an exceptionally drinkable blush pink rosé, suitable for every occasion. The exquisite bottle exudes fruit and sharp citrus aromas, combined with a crisp, dry, and well-rounded finish.
Barry Bayat had grown tired of the uninspiring rosé options that had seemingly been available for decades. As he hosted his friends and loved ones for weekly gatherings or dined out, he yearned for something new and exceptional – a rosé that would leave an indelible impression and create excitement. Determined to create the perfect blend and product, Barry left behind his finance career and set off to the vineyards of southern France in early 2019.
Founded in the 13th century by the Knights Templar, RUMOR’s supplier vineyard covers an area of some 850 hectares dotted with oaks and olive groves, with 93 hectares dedicated to growing grapes. Thanks to its outstanding natural location the lands were a favoured staging post and a place of rest for pilgrims on their way to the Holy Land. At an elevation of 330 metres on the lower slopes of the Massif des Maures, the vineyard sits on clay and limestone soil which is ideal for viticulture.
