2019 Sparkling Rosé
This sparkling wine is bursting with fruit! Fresh cut strawberries, yellow peaches, and ripe raspberry leap out in front, while nuances of ginger, cinnamon stick, and vanilla cream make for a complex profile.
Winemaking note Sparkling rose is a celebration of harvest! During the season I pull some juice out of each tank the same day we crush fruit into it. Then I ferment that lightly colored juice as if it was a white wine. At the end of the season I have a palette of rose wines that range in varietal from pinot to petite sirah, in color from bright pink to salmon to deep ruby, in aromas from white flowers to tropical fruit to ripe berries. As we evaluate individual rose lots we set aside our favorites to blend together to make this small amount of sparkling. The right amount of bubbles brightens any day!
2019 vintage 2019 was a near ideal growing season. A later summer with mild temperatures helped the grapes develop to perfect physiological ripeness without being overloaded with sugar. Great balance of color, acidity, ripeness, aromas and freshness is the hallmark of 2019!
