2016 Rose of Pinot Noir

2016 Rose of Pinot Noir

Bright, dry, crisp and refreshing- our Rose is back! A bit darker in color this year and with more body. The nose is a melange of strawberries, rhubarb jam and guava and the palate has a bright acidity and softness that makes sipping it ever so easy. We only bottled 75 cases this year so it will go fast- don't wait.

Cart Total:  $0.00



Vintage: 2016
Wine Style: Rosé Wine
Varietal: Rosé
Appellation: Carneros
Our Rose is comprised of a blend from all of our amazing Pinot Noir vineyards. It is mostly Carneros but has a touch of Sonoma Mountain juice in it as well.
This is the way we make our Rose- saigner all the way. What that means is this. We bring in the Pinot Noir grapes that we have let ripen to perfection in order to make our red wines. Once all the berries are in their fermentation vessels we "bleed out" some of the juice. This juice is pink already because it was just stained from the skins and seeds of the grapes. We put that pink juice into neutral oak barrels (ones that we had our Pinot Noir in) and let the fermentation begin on it's own. Yes, no inoculating for us.
During fermentation we monitor the temperature and sugars of the wine in the barrel. Once the yeasts have eaten ALL the sugar (meaning the wine is now DRY) we let it rest a few months more and then prepare it for bottling. Often we do not fine or cold stabilize the wine in order to maintain all the aromatics. We do sometimes filter before putting it in the bottle.
