Winemaker Chuck Ortman Notes
It’s warm outside, so who doesn’t want to drink some pink? This rosé, made in the saignée method, is fermented, cold soaked, and aged in stainless steel, creating a full bodied yet fun and flirty wine who shyly presents an amazing versatility. “Jolly rancher! Gummi bears! Watermelon!,” you cry, at the first taste. The wine shows a firm acidity but a nice warmth in the mid-palate, then finishes dry with no sweetness at all. Tart, citrus flavors of tangerine, and even a hint of guava pop in your mouth, and strawberry and raspberry linger on long after the first glass. This wine is reminiscent of the rosés of Provence, simple yet exciting wines made for fresh seafood, melty cheeses, and sunset picnics in the vineyard.
