From a single site down in Arroyo Seco, this was picked early for freshness and a light alcohol level. Pressed down there, just on the skins headed north. The nose shows a bright hit of peach, orange peel, and citrus flesh. The palate is light even for a rose with grapefruit, peach, and lemon oils. D&M Tasting Notes

A fresh, semi-savory, light wine that should be great with summer and warmer weather or whenever for year-round rosé enthusiasts.

This is our seventh rosé from Gamay grapes that result from a grafting and planting project that started back in 2013 in Arroyo Seco. 2016 was our first harvest from the newly grafted vines and to give them a break, we harvested everything at pretty low brix with the idea of making rosé. Despite the fact that we planted the block to make red wine, we like it so much for rosé that we mostly continue with that program.

Grapes were taken directly to press with just a minimal amount of skin contact time during the trucking from Greenfield to Santa Rosa. Fermentation was uninoculated in stainless steel with temperature control to keep the fermenting juice cool and the fermentation slow, preserving aromatics and flavors. Winery Notes
