WSI93+ The 2019 Rosè is one of our lightest Rosès in color, “onion-peel” pink. Honeysuckle, crane melon and lemongrass notes in the nose stay fresh and vibrant as the wine picks up air. Cucumber water, grapefruit pith, and minerals liven the palette leaving you refreshed and energized. The low alcohol creates the perfect pairing for the pool, beach or a sunny afternoon. Great for this summer, and even better next summer. This Rosè will age. We know from experience 84% Grenache, 16% Mourvèdre. 224 cases produced..
WE92 This complex, spicy wine is made from 84% Grenache and 16% Mourvèdre, the juice fermented in concrete egg to capture freshness. Dried herb, dark cherry and strawberry cream combine to fulfill a fruity, lifted experience on the palate, finishing in lemongrass.
Our Rosè is light, fresh, and dry. It is the style that we like to drink, with the same protocols that we have used for 11 years. We hand harvest at dawn, and whole cluster press cold, first thing in the morning. The Rosè gets as little skin contact as possible, and goes through the “sparkling wine” program in the bladder press, the gentlest program. The clear juice is racked to our Sonoma Cast Stone Egg fermenter. The fermentation never reaches 65 degrees Fahrenheit, to preserve freshness. No malolactic fermentation is allowed. The wine is lightly filtered on the way to bottling. All natural acidity. Ingredients: Grapes, Yeast, SO2.
