Super light in color, and preferably served chilled this is a party boy Rosé that I want to hang out with all the time. On the nose this is juicy and brambly with spice and fun. The flavors run from blood orange and tangerine to plum, pluot and various other stone fruits.
The grapes were hand harvested and transferred to a small open top vessel for 100% whole cluster fermentation. Initial extraction was obtained through traditional foot treading (pigéage à pied). Once primary fermentation was complete, the free-run wine along with a small amount of press wine was transferred to a once-used medium toast Meryrieux French oak barrel. Malolactic fermentation was completed by the end of September. The wine was then racked off the fermentation lees and bottled unfined and unfiltered on March 26, 2021. This lighter expression of Grenache pays homage to traditional winemaking techniques from the time when the vines were planted.
