Rose

45% GRENACHE 38% CARIGNAN, 12% MOURVEDRE, 5% SYRAH

About this wine

While this Rosé is in the same wheelhouse as the 2018 version (that was Carignan dominant), the 2020 expresses an interplay of Grenache and Carignan that adds to the intrigue and complexity of the wine. Like a proper whole cluster pressed rosé, the color is a pale pink/peach. It has both wonderful texture and vibrant acidity that keeps it fresh and alive (refreshing!) The nose is floral with hints of peach and apricot. On the palate, there is a small amount of residual sugar lending a softness to the texture. Minerality comes through as crushed rocks with hints of stone fruit and just enough mouthwatering acidity to power a clean, but long finish.
