Why You'll Love It

Our 2017 Rosé delivers uplifting floral aromas of cherry blossom and elderflower, alongside ripe cherries and a touch of plum. On the palate, the bright acidity complements the delicate acidity giving a balanced and complex mouth feel with long persistence. Flavors on the palate blend cranberries with cherry blossom notes, a touch of cut hay and mellow late season strawberries. The crisp acidity helps provide freshness to the wine.

Winemaker Notes

Our 2017 Rosé is comprised of lots made in two distinct styles. For the traditional saigneé (bleed) style, we removed a small percentage of freshly liberated juice after crushing red fruit. This technique both concentrates the flavor and structure of our red wines and allows us to make a lovely dry Rosé, keeping the more delicate aromatics and fruit flavors of each variety without the tannins. We also produced true Rosé by destemming and crushing lower maturity red grapes followed by careful pressing of the lightly colored grape juice prior to fermentation. Blending of these lots yielded a complex yet elegant wine, with plenty of bright red and ethereal substance, which was bottled after fermenting and aging sur lies for four months in stainless steel tanks.
