2016 Rosé

2016 Rosé
2016 Rosé

In the tradition of the great Rosés of Bandol, our blend of 80% Mourvedre and 20% Grenache was intentionally fermented cold in order to retain its delicate rose petal aromatics and bright fruit character. Crisp and dry, this perennial favorite brings year-round cheer.

Tasting notes

The nose opens up with a pretty oral character mixed with peach and grapefruit. The palate is light and crisp with restrained acidity. As the wine opens, white peach begins to dominate the nose.

Production notes

Fruit for this blend was hand harvested on September 22nd, 2016. The harvest analysis was the following: 21.4° Brix, 3.19 pH and a TA of 7.0 g/L. The fruit was destemmed and pressed. A portion was left in contact with the skins until the desired color was extracted. The juice was transferred to tank and cold settled for two days at which time it was racked o the gross lees and warmed. The wine cold fermented to dry, which took about 6 weeks. After fermentation, the wine was chilled to inhibit any spontaneous malolactic fermentation from occurring. The wine was heat/cold stabilized and sterile ltered prior to being bottled on February 2nd, 2017.
