Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2017 rosé is fresh and bright with classic aromatics of strawberries, white flowers, and watermelon rind, coupled with subtle notes of citrus zest. The wine has laser focus on the palate with ample acidity to work with a variety of dishes.
Winemaker's Notes
The 2017 rosé is 100% “purposeful” rosé in that all of the fruit utilized for the wine was grown, picked, and pressed for the sole purpose of rosé rather than bleeding off juice in a saignée method. The fruit was pressed after 2 to 6 hours on its skins depending on the varietal, resulting in a light salmon skin hue.
