Wine Description

(2013 Vintage) Our Rosé of Pinot Noir is a very exciting marker of spring here at the winery. Just like in previous vintages, we selected clone 113 pinot noir from a block just behind the winery to create this wine. The fruit was loaded directly into the press which simply tumbled and drained for several hours allowing only “free run” juice to pass through. From that point, the juice fermented in our cold room in a combination of stainless steel and neutral oak with no lees disturbance and inhibited malo-lactic. The goal of such an approach is a wine of very delicate color with the bright and nuanced characteristics of this high toned and aromatic clone of pinot noir.
