EL DORADO ROSE OF GAMAY NOIR

By Gros Ventre Cellars

Our 2020 Rosé is comprised entirely from Gamay Noir grown at high elevation in El Dorado. We’ve longed to make this Gamay-only wine for years, but never had enough Gamay grapes. The 2020 wildfires afforded us the opportunity to make something beautiful from something terrible, allowing us to crush more Gamay for purposeful Rosé. It's pale pink in color, with aromatics of orange peel, carnations, strawberry, and hints of herbs and watermelon rind. This fresh rendition has vibrant acidity that pairs well with a Covid-friendly picnic and a bucket of fried chicken.
