This dazzling rosé offers enticing aromas of wild strawberry, pink lady apple, ruby grapefruit and white flower blossoms. On the palate, silky layers of stone fruit and citrus are underscored by a sleek, sophisticated minerality that carries the lush fruit flavors to a bright, lingering finish.
With just 50% of our average rainfall to start the season we took proactive measures in our vineyards, including early suckering and pruning, careful cover crop management and targeted irrigation to ensure healthy vines. Spring and summer brought mild-to-warm temperatures that allowed the grapes to ripen slowly and evenly, resulting in early flavor development at lower Brix with high acidity. To achieve balanced acids with even more flavor development we waited patiently until September 1st to begin our Chardonnay harvest and completed our last Pinot Noir pick on October 2nd. The resulting wines offer ideal ripeness, supple textures and beautifully concentrated flavors.
