2018 Rosé of Tempranillo – With a nose of cotton candy and Comice pear, this silky rosé has the creaminess from a slow and cool barrel fermentation combined with a stunning acid structure for a balanced take on rosé that combines styles from Provence and Bandol. Peach skin and white pepper add to the floral mouthfeel of a rosé that is not so simple in nature.
Picked at 20.8 Brix, whole cluster press, barrel ferment, 8 months in neutral French oak, 20% ML dry, unfined and unfiltered, one small SO2 addition before bottling (20ppm), 12.9% ABV, 120 Cases Produced. Retail: $22
