2017 Rosé of Grenache
Grenache from Arroyo Seco is the basis for this “vin gris” style dry Rosé.
Vineyards in Arroyo Seco are subject to strong afternoon winds and early morning fog. These cooling influences create one of the longest growing seasons in North America, yielding grapes with fully developed flavors and bright acidity.
Our Rosé is produced using fruit dedicated solely to Rosé production, picked at lower sugar and higher acids. The grapes were foot stomped and left to macerate for 6 hours, then whole cluster pressed. Its clean fermentation yielded a wine with bright fruit flavors and refreshing acidity, making it light and approachable.
Rosé is one of our favorite spring releases. Bright fruit flavors and racy acidity are cleansing
and refreshing. Lively aromas of rose petal, nectarine cobbler, and bubble gum are followed by flavors of watermelon and ruby red grapefruit. Its bright acidity makes this wine incredibly food versatile – try it chilled for a patio lunch with cracked crab or cold salmon atop fresh greens and young tomatoes.
