Only 100 cases were produced of the 2017 vintage Rosé. The wine is made from 100% Grenache Noir grapes harvested from two specific vineyard blocks on one farm, which is known for its Rhone varietals. One of the blocks has a VSP trellising system and the other a vine by stake method. The harvest was split in two with the first being picked earlier for freshness and focus, while the later portion provided fruit, flavor and intensity. After crushing, the juice was left on the grape skins overnight to extract color and flavor and then pressed gently, collecting only the best juice. The wine was then tank fermented at cool temperatures to optimize the expression of fruit and was aged on the lees in tank for 6 months. The final result is a dry, refreshing and flavorful Rosé.
