Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2018 rosé is fresh and vivacious with stunning aromatics of strawberries, white flowers, mango and melon. The wine has explosive acidity and generous palate presence. It’s an excellent expression of the elegant side of El Dorado County.
Winemaker's Notes
The 2018 Rose was made with intention. Each lot was selected specifically for rose production and farmed and harvested accordingly. The fruit from each lot was hand-sorted, macerated for 4 hours, and pressed cold. The juice was settled, blended and sent to neutral barrels for an entirely native fermentation. Malolactic conversion was arrested early on in order to retain natural acidity, and bottled soon after to capture freshness.
