This dry rosé greets you with enticing aromas of freshly picked strawberries, watermelon and lychee framed by a stunning bouquet of honeysuckle and rose petals
Its vibrancy and mouthfeel are in perfect balance, creating a delicate summer wine with beautiful complexity.
The 2017 growing season has seen a series of dramatic changes starting with 180% of the average annual rainfall and some hail in February to one of the best fruit sets in years. We experienced weeks of cool, foggy mornings in the summer alongside record high temperatures towards the end of August. By October 8, when the wine country wildfires started, all the fruit for this beautiful rosé was already harvested and fermenting in the cave.
Whole cluster pressed, our fruit was fermented in 2-ton stainless steel tanks. The lees was stirred daily for the first couple of weeks to increase mouthfeel perception and the fermentation culminated in hand selected neutral barrels.
