This 2019 Syrah Rosé is bursting with fresh strawberries, mixed berry coulis, peach pie, and nectarines. On the palate, it is crisp and refreshing, showing strawberry tart, pomegranates, fresh red fruits, and a touch of red apple skin while having a long, pleasant finish. The result is a wine that is an ideal compliment to summer afternoons and warm evenings. This wine is best enjoyed chilled.

WINERMAKER NOTES

After being hand-harvested, the Syrah grapes were gently whole-cluster pressed. 75% cool fermented in a stainless steel tank while 25% of the grapes went to neutral barrels. Before fermentation, the juice underwent a cold stabulation (chilling at 40°F) for 7 days, increasing the texture and aromatics. This process is a common practice for Rosé in France. The stainless steel tank was inoculated with a special Provençal-style Rosé yeast while the barrels underwent a native fermentation. The barrels and tank were aged sur lies (on the lees) and stirred every 2-3 weeks for enhanced mid-palete building.

THE VINTAGE

The 2019 vintage was a near perfect growing season! Bud break began in late March, leading to a Spring that had few showers and was relatively dry. Summer was also quite warm and long, leading into a steady Autumn harvest season. The consistent summer and fall weather encouraged our Syrah grapes to ripen in early-September.
