PROFILE & WINEMAKING
Harvested in the cool of night, then gently pressed after brief contact time in the press, the Rosé of Pinot Noir is fermented in stainless steel at low temperatures to preserve the wine’s freshness. After fermentation, a combination of neutral barrels and stainless steel tanks are used to age before bottling. A lovely salmon color with wild flowers, bright red fruits, cantaloupe and orange peel jump from the glass. The bright acidity and lively fruit make this a natural pairing with grilled seafood, spicy dishes and most picnic fare.
