Description

52% Grenache

Vista Serrano Vineyard, Paso Robles

Sawyer Lindquist Vineyard, Edna Valley

48% Mourvedre

Vista Serrano Vineyard, Paso Robles

The majority of Grenache grapes as well as the Mourvedre were sourced from Vista Serrano Vineyard, located on the West side of Paso Robles. The soils at this hillside vineyard are rocky loam with limestone striated throughout. The Sawyer Lindquist Vineyard is in the coastal Edna Valley, six miles from the Pacific Ocean.

The Vista Serrano Grenache and Mourvedre, were whole cluster pressed. The Sawyer Lindquist Grenache was de-stemmed and soaked overnight on the skins before being pressed.

All the grapes were picked early for rosé. The Vista Serrano Grenache & Mourvedre lots fermented separately in a combination of (mostly) stainless steel tank and neutral barrels. The SLV Grenache was neutral barrel fermented. All the wine went through malolactic fermentation.

The rosé components were blended together in January, fined with bentonite and cold stabilized. The finished wine was bottled in early March.

The wine has a pretty pale pink color with hints of salmon. The aromas are of strawberries with hints of watermelon.   This refreshing wine has flavors of strawberry-rhubarb with refreshing citrus notes and hints of herbs de Provence.
