The aromas start as pretty notes of strawberry & ripe melon. The palate presents an array of floral notes around nice fruit depth, leading to a crisp finish with ample acidity. Enjoy it as an aperitif, with raw shellfish, or with fresh summer salads featuring fruit and nuts.
In 2018 the growing season returned to a more normal start, after three early years. Flowering and fruit set occurred during ideal conditions leading to a bigger than average crop. The growing season was quite warm. We picked the Pinot Noir used to make this Rose early, then pressed gently and slowly to allow minimal color extraction. We then fermented in stainless steel, no ML. The wine spent a total of 4.5 months in tank before bottling.
