Rosé, Sonoma Valley (2017)

Rosé, Sonoma Valley (2017)

With its striking color and delicate floral nose this dry Rosé promises to be something special. Aromas of honeydew melon, delicate white peach and rose petal precede fruit-forward flavors of strawberry and pink grapefruit with a note of “wet stone” minerality. this silky wine finishes with a refreshing, crisp acidity.
A portion of the sales of this special Rosé will be donated to Breast Cancer research.

Our Rosé is made in the Provence style, using the saignée (French for bleed) method. This southern French style is considered by many to be the benchmark for dry rosés, producing wines that are fresh and crisp with a lovely blush color. Before fermentation begins, a small percentage of juice is bled off of the red skins before the skins can contribute much color or tannin. This special blend combines the saignée juice of Sangiovese and Zinfandel with touches of Chardonnay, Syrah and Mourvèdre to add balance and additional flavor. The blend is fermented slowly in stainless steel tanks and then aged in neutral, red French oak
barrels before bottling.
