2020 Rosé of Syrah
Our Rosé comes from 25-to-30-year-old Syrah vines residing in the western portion of Lake County. This wine was grown, harvested and made specifically to be a Rosé. The Syrah grapes were hand picked at just around 21° Brix with 50% of the grapes are put through a classic “white pressing program” and the other 50% go through a "Champagne pressing" program. The former gives us more flavor and color, while the latter gives us a wine that has intriguing aromas and more elegant texture. Combining the two optimizes the qualities of the fruit and creates a fresh, subtle, yet complex wine in the Provençal style.
