2018 Brut Rosé

A favorite among our enthusiasts, this wine expresses great balance while emphasizing fruity and floral characteristics. Rosé wines are often believed to be made only from Pinot Noir, but the best, including ours, have Chardonnay added for structure. The latest vintage of our beloved Brut Rosé entices with luscious notes of rose petal, honeysuckle, and grilled peaches.

Tasting Notes

On the nose, the 2018 vintage welcomes the senses with aromas of rose petal, honeysuckle, grilled peaches, oranges, and white cherry. Flavors of tangerine, strawberry tart, peaches, marzipan, and mandarin evoke the bliss of a perfect summer day. 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.
