Picked early to retain acidity, the fruit is whole-cluster pressed before cold settling in tank for 48 hours. Racked to neutral barrels for a coll and slow fermentation to complete dryness. After 8 months in barrel, the wine is bottled with minimal SO2. No fining, no additions, and only light filtration on the bottling line.
Heringer Family Vineyard enjoys the cooling breezes from the Sacramento Delta and has been in the same family since 1868. Certified sustainable and herbicide-free, HFV pairs consistently warm days with very cool nights that allow for perfect growing conditions.
This rosé of predominantly Tempranillo was picked early just for making rosé, and the freshness and acidity really shine. Grapefruit rind and gummy peaches on the nose, followed by strawberry and watermelon soda on the mouth. Sleek and dry, the finish has a touch of salinity to complement the red fruit and white pepper.
44% Tempranillo, 22% Syrah, 16% Primitivo, 8% Grenache, 7% Chenin Blanc, 3% Muscat Canelli
