Our first 2016 rosé is a winner! It’s equal parts Syrah and Carignan, grown and harvested fresh just for rosé. After a few hours of fermentation, the juice is pressed off the black grape skins, giving it a just-right amount of color and structure while allowing the juice to retain all of its natural freshness and vibrancy.
As soon as you see this in your glass, you know you’re in for a treat. It’s a beautifully transparent salmon pink that almost sparkles in sunshine. Aromas of fresh picked strawberries and crushed red fruits – raspberries and cherries – get a lift from floral accents and a hint of citrus rind. In the mouth, it’s bright and crisp with loads of berry fruit and just a touch of mineral, showcasing the short 2016 vintage’s silky texture and ripe fruit. The acids come up on the finish and make your mouth water, leaving you looking for a little bite to eat or another refreshing sip. Drink this on its own anytime you like, or pair it with anything from smoked salmon to fruited chicken salad. “Berry” delicious!
