High Valley Vineyard Rose 2017
Separately we brought in Grenache, Syrah, Cinsault and Mourvédre from our High Valley Vineyard. Using a process known as Saignée, we bled off 12% juice from each lot. We then fermented at cooler temperatures (13°C/55°F) to capture the delicate floral aromas and abundant fruit flavor of this Rose’. The Cinsault is a new addition for 2017. It is the first crop from our ‘mother vine’ Cinsault block, planted in the 1890’s.
"Our High Valley Rose’ has bright aromas of raspberry, strawberry, and hints of lime. Perfect pairing with Mediterranean dishes and good friends any time of the year." - Joy Merrilees, Director of Winemaking and Production
