Tasting Notes

The 2022 Grenache Rosé mesmerizes with a picturesque light pink/salmon color, reminiscent of the delicate hues characteristic of Grenache Rosé. Its enchanting shade reflects the meticulous winemaking process and captures the essence of this classic varietal.

From the moment the wine is poured, the air is filled with an irresistible bouquet of fresh-picked strawberries and ripe red cherries. Hints of crushed watermelon and a touch of wildflowers add a layer of complexity to the aroma, evoking a captivating sense of the vineyard's summer allure.

On the palate, the wine unfolds with a harmonious medley of flavors. Juicy raspberry and succulent peach dance gracefully on the taste buds, accompanied by delicate notes of rose petals and a subtle underpinning of citrus zest. The gentle skin contact during pressing has contributed to the wine's enchanting texture, allowing the fruit flavors to caress the palate with a velvety softness.

The winemaker's artistry shines through in the creation of this Grenache Rosé. The decision to leave the grapes on the skins for 45 minutes has bestowed the wine with its radiant pink hue, a testament to the thoughtful craftsmanship behind its production. Fermented entirely in stainless steel at a cool 55 degrees Fahrenheit, the wine maintains its freshness and purity, capturing the essence of Grenache in its purest form.

The wine concludes with a refreshing and satisfying finish that leaves a lasting impression. A delicate touch of minerality complements the fruit-forward character, adding depth to the wine's final moments. The balanced acidity ensures a crisp and invigorating close, leaving the palate yearning for another delightful sip.
