A wine famous for summer sipping, this Rosé is the perfect pairing for all occasions and all weather conditions. There is no cheese and no setting where this wine fails to shine. This wine is drinking beautifully right now, showing aged rose petals, mushroom along with typical fruits in our Rose.
Sublime notes of citrus flowers and ripe strawberry on the nose lead to a mouthful of fresh white nectarine and raspberry mingle with flinty minerality all supported by a backbone of soft, integrated tannins and mouthwatering acidity. A rose with this kind of soft, balanced fruit and ample structure make it a go-to option year round.
Cultivating balance in the vineyard requires listening to your intuition as much as your vines. With the assistance of Andrew Avellar from Carneros Vineyard Management, we sustainably farm 8.5 acres of an ancient riverbed, located in the heart of Sonoma County's Carneros appellation. Our 100% Pinot Noir vineyard is divided into four distinct blocks, and planted with a field blend of two Burgundian clones from the Cote d’Or that are ideally suited to our soils and location. Clone 667 gives us beautiful acidity, great structure, small clusters, intense color and a long finish, while clone 115 helps us achieve a sophisticated elegance and incredible aromatics. Together, these clones produce a wine with complex synergies and exceptional balance. We meticulously tend our vines throughout the year, thinning the crop dramatically to ensure they produce no more than 2 to 2.5 tons per acre. We then hand-pick based solely on flavor, harvesting selected blocks over the course of multiple nights to capture and preserve the freshness and purity of night-chilled fruit.
Our Estate Rosé is is hand harvested in August while acid and sugar levels are in optimal harmony. Winemaker Kenneth Juhasz performs a foot tread press and the wine is fermented in neutral oak for 5 months before bottling.
