2020 Grenache Rosé – 100% estate-grown Grenache Rosé
This wine delivers a sophisticated nose of summer berries and passion fruit, leading to vibrant notes of strawberry, cherries, grapefruit, and raspberries. The aromas pull you in and are balanced with an elegantly structured mouthfeel, balanced acidity, and a refreshing stony minerality to finish. This beautiful wine is just as delightful at home on the back porch as it is in the dining room!
This rosé’s elegantly strawberry pink color was achieved by limiting the skin contact to only 4 hours at 40°F before being gently pressed and allowed to ferment in stainless steel tanks. This approach elevates the very floral style. Upon completion of primary fermentation, the wine was racked and aged on fine lees to further develop its complexity and highlight the bright fruit flavors that this wine boasts. In order to retain maximum flavor and body in balance with clarity, this rosé underwent a light filtration prior to bottling.
South facing, our Southern Oregon Vineyard Estate is located at the northern end of the Rogue Valley. With elevations ranging from 700 to 1800 feet, the primarily ancient volcanic and alluvial fan soils provide well drained, nutrient rich soils which are ideal for growing premium wine grapes.
Crisp and bright fruit flavors make the Grenache Rosé a breeze to pair with a variety of dishes. Take it on a picnic with a colorful assortment of juicy berries, soft, tangy cheeses such as chevre or havarti, or a salad of grilled halloumi, fresh mint, mixed greens, and cubed watermelon in pomegranate citrus vinaigrette. This beautiful wine would also be perfectly at home matched with an elegant dinner date of seafood ceviche, fried calamari, or parmesan arancini. Day or night, casual or formal, this wine would be the ideal accompaniment.
