2017 Dry Rose - Estate

Product Image

The grapes for our Dry Rosé come exclusively from our 65 acre estate in the Dry Creek Valley. The location is influenced by the cool fog from the Russian River Valley and the daytime heat of Dry Creek. Sustainable practices are utilized to minimize environmental impact.  The grapes were picked early in the morning on October 6, 2017 at cool temperatures, which preserves fruit aromas and flavors. Being so close to our vineyards, we have the luxury of being able to crush our fruit within minutes of harvest. After destemming and crushing, the grapes are pressed off the skins. Fermentation is conducted in stainless steel between 54 and 58F.  A bright nose of strawberry and raspberry along with floral nuances precedes lively fresh fruit flavors. The wine's ample yet balanced acidity extends the finish and will make a perfect pairing to a warm spring day.  Rosé is a very versatile wine when it comes to food. Try paring with: Mexican food, grilled salmon, sauteed shrimp, or appetizers.
