Our 2017 Rosé is inspired by the refreshing, dry rosés of southern France. With its sunsoaked slopes and coastal ambiance, Paso Robles boasts an ideal terroir for echoing the flavor and spirit of these popular Mediterranean wines.
Syrah grapes from our estate Huerhuero Vineyard were selected and harvested early in the morning. At the winery, the grapes were crushed and transferred directly into a stainless steel tank, where they were cold soaked on their skins for two hours to extract color and flavor without excessive astringency. The juice was then drained off the skins into another tank and cold settled for 48 hours to further remove excess sediment. Upon racking, the juice was inoculated with a selected yeast strain to express fresh, aromatic fruit aromas and enhance its
complexity. A small portion of Viognier was blended to further aromatic expression.
