Wine Description

(2014 Vintage) Pinot Noir fruit for our Rosé is hand-harvested and is a combination of both gently whole-bunch pressed fruit, and a traditional method of making a Rosé called saignée. Saignée is free run juice that is bled off early prior to fermentation of Pinot Noir, which we thoughtfully collect in order to make a delicately balanced Rosé. The pressed fruit and saignée is all fermented cool in stainless steel tanks, then carefully selected lots of fermented red Pinot Noir juice is blended back in for color and texture. Our Pinot Noir Rosé is finished completely dry.

    Grapefruit and raspberry acidic nose, full pear and grapefruit on the palate with grapefruit finish. One of our favorite Rose's to-date.
