Our 2015 Rosé is our first made from Carignan, from the Trimble Vineyard, the same vineyard of our popular 2014 Carignan red wine. The Triimble Vineyard is 40 years old, head trained, dry farmed, and certified organic.
We picked one ton just for rosé, two weeks prior to our picking for reds. The grapes were crushed and left on the skins for 2-4 hours, then pressed. Fermented and aged 50% in stainless barrels and 50% in neutral French oak, giving the wine both great aromas, vibrant acid, and excellent texture and mouthfeel. Like our previous vintages of Rosé, it shows more complexity, and savory notes than many others. A perfect summer sipper, but also pairs wonderfully with all grilled summer fare.
