2021 Rosé of Pinot Noir
Rosé of Pinot Noir
Emerald Ridge, Fox Den, Docker Hill
6.5 gm/ Lit.
100% Stainless Ferment
Bursting with aromas of rose petals, juicy watermelon, and pear, our 2021 Rosé of Pinot Noir gives you everything you want from our favorite pink wine. In the mouth, there's just the right amount of creaminess enveloping the strawberry and citrus core. Stone fruit, melon, and candy apple notes add to the fruit party, with a touch of grapefruit peel giving the wine a zesty flair. The finish is lively and succulent, making your mouth water for the next sip.
For our 2021 vintage of Rosé, we went back to Green Valley for the core of the wine, with our bright and aromatic Emerald Ridge and Fox Den vineyards. We rounded out the blend with our rich and juicy Docker Hill once again. All of these Pinots are known for their great combination of structure and acidity from their cool sites, along with plushness and complexity. Together, they give us the fresh crispness, sweet candied fruit quality, and pretty floral notes we love in the best Rosés.
Our goal with our Rosé is to highlight the freshness and floral characters that make this such a perfect summer sipping wine. We began by foot-trodding whole clusters of pinot noir in bins and sent this juice to tank. We handled the wine as we do our bright whites, fermenting slow and cold in stainless steel to preserve the fresh esters of fermentation and the central core of fruit. We also employ yeast that showcase the high tone aromatics that are so inviting in this wine. We allow no malolactic fermentation to proceed in order to maintain the fresh acidity and essential aromatics.
Food Pairing Notes
Rosé is such a friendly pairing wine, going with anything from appetizers to salads to the main course. It’s especially wonderful with a charcuterie board, fresh young cheeses, chicken salad, clams, and grilled halibut.
