2017 JAX Y3 Rose of Pinot Noir

As eternal rosé lovers, we have always wanted to craft a gem of our own. The key to such a creation would be the ideal vineyard which we found at the highest acclaimed source in the Russian River Valley.  With minimal skin contact, this delicate rosé offers a bone-dry style accompanied by a touch of weight and complexity.  Think "lunch in Provence."

The Craft

This wine is a true Vin Gris Rosé. Harvesting the vineyard in the early morning hours to preserve acidity, the fruit was whole-cluster pressed and fermented in 100% stainless steel. This method allows for little to no skin maceration producing a delicate, pale pink wine. Fermenting in stainless steel at cool temperatures allows the Pinot Noir to retain its innate bright strawberry characteristics and crisp acidity.

Tasting Notes

This saignee rose is made from Pinot Noir. On the nose, there are attractive vibrant and fresh aromas of summer fruits (strawberries, raspberries, peaches and stone fruit). The palate shows complex flavors of Rainier cherry and wild strawberry with mouthwatering acidity.
