Our 2007 Roseum is inspired by the refreshing, dry rosés of southern France. With its sun-soaked slopes and coastal ambiance, Paso Robles boasts an ideal terroir for echoing the flavor and spirit of these popular Mediterranean wines. (“Ros-e-um” - Lat. rose colored, of the rose). The inspiration of the name comes from the Rhône Valley’s history that is still evident in its Roman ruins and in the endurance of its centuries-old wine trade.
The grapes were harvested early in the morning at our Huerhuero Vineyard. At the winery, they were crushed and transferred directly into the press, where they soaked on their skins for over 8 hours, in order to extract color and flavor. After this soak, they were pressed off their skins in to a stainless steel tank, where the juice was cold fermented for 4 weeks to retain aromatic complexity and freshness.
Enjoy now through 2010.
