This is a light, fresh style Rosé highlighting minimal skin contact with the Pinot Noir grapes, and showcasing primary aromatics and bright acidity. We make this wine using two distinct production techniques and source the fruit specifically for this program which allows for high natural acidity, low natural alcohol, and fresh fruit characteristics by picking the grapes at optimal ripeness for Rosé. Pale salmon in color, this delightfully refreshing wine displays bright aromas of green strawberry and carnation on the nose. A tight entry on the palate gives way to a subtle creaminess on the mid-palate and a focused and lingering acidity on the finish.
High toned in flavors of freshly squeezed lemon and grapefruit, this wine opens into a world of nutty, herbal secondary characteristics that work to contrast and contribute earthiness. Lasting acidity keeps it immeasurably crisp.
