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. The next step would be the winemaking technique. Harvesting the vineyard in the early morning hours to preserve acidity, the fruit was whole-cluster pressed and fermented in 100% stainless steel. With minimal skin contact, this delicate rosé offers a bone-dry style accompanied by a touch of weight and complexity.
Think "lunch in Provence."
This wine is a true Vin Gris Rosé. After harvest, the grapes are quickly crushed, whole cluster pressed, and placed directly into a stainless steel fermentor - just like white wine grapes. 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.
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.
