On the nose, the 2017 vintage welcomes the senses with aromas of rose petal, honeysuckle, and white cherry. Flavors of freshly cut peaches, blood orange, tangerine, and a hint of pie crust evoke the bliss of a perfect summer day through the lovely, long finish. We made this wine by leaving part of the Pinot Noir juice in contact with the skins for three days during harvest. A warm toastiness evolves from this lees contact and combines with the ethereal Pinot Noir fruit character. As the wine ages and the tiny bubbles are formed, an elegant wine of great poise evolves. Rosé wines are often believed to be made from only Pinot Noir, but the best, including ours, have Chardonnay added for structure.
