Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Pale scarlet blush in color with delicate aromas of strawberries, pink grapefruit and red cherries with just a touch of guava. Balanced but piquant, with bright citrus notes and a lingering finish of strawberry, vanilla and hints of mango. Vivacious, refreshing, fruit forward. 100% Syrah
Vineyard Notes
The 2017 vintage started with one of the wettest winters on record, rainfall exceeding 150% of normal. This was a welcome respite from the relatively dry previous vintages and filled reservoirs and soil profiles. The effect was happy, lush vines with vigorous growth during the spring and early summer months, putting harvest timing a bit later than normal. Temperatures during the summer were moderate and made for perfect ripening weather for the Rosé, even and warm. Harvest began at a relaxed pace, with our first grapes, Sauvignon blanc, arriving on August 22. Our Syrah for the Rosé, always the first among the reds to arrive at the winery, was picked just after on August 25.
Winemaker Notes
Our Rosé of Syrah is made with traditional Provencal techniques. The Syrah grapes are picked early in the season, at around 21 Brix, much earlier than we would pick for making a traditional red. This imparts a white wine sensibility – light, with bright fruit and a crisp mouthfeel. The grapes are gently pressed to delicately tint the juice to its desired hue, and then cold-fermented to give beautiful strawberry, citrus and lightly tropical flavors, with a hint of sweetness for a round, fruit-rich palate. Equally beautiful and delicious, it makes an elegant addition to any table.
