Tasting Notes

Pale salmon in color with strawberry, sweet pepper and a hint of lilac on the nose. Its silky texture leads into mellow peaches, white pepper and a persistent cold tea finish.

Winemaker Notes

Three tons of Gamay Noir from the older vineyard and 425 pounds Syrah were crushed and de-stemmed together on September 27, 2010. They fermented for 5 days, and were pressed on October 4, 2010 and racked to barrels two days later. Twelve gallons of this wine were taken from an older neutral barrel for use in the Rose’. The Cabernet Franc for the Rosé came from both the newer vineyard (CF2) and the older vineyard (CF1.) Harvest of CF2 began on October 8, 2010. After chilling, the Cabernet Franc grapes were crushed, de-stemmed and then cold soaked for 3 days before pressing. The juice cold settled for 3 days. This was later blended with 38% Cabernet Franc from the older vineyards – a block that was heavily botrytised and then harvested on October 12, 2010. It was crushed, de-stemmed, fermented, then pressed on October 19, 2010. Malolactic fermentation finished by early December.

Food Pairing

Best served slightly chilled, Rosé is well suited to grilled sausages and summer vegetables. It is a harmonious match to a bouillabaisse, mushroom and liver paté.
