The 2018 Rosé is 100% Grenache made from Neenach Ranch Vineyard in the northeast corner of the Antelope Valley, near the base of the Tejon Pass. The vineyard rests on a slight slope that allows cooling breezes to sweep through the rows in the late summer afternoons, cooling down the grapevines, allowing acidity and minerality to remain even as intense fruit flavors develop. The grapes were picked by hand and immediately crushed and pressed to preserve the wine’s natural freshness, before settling into a temperature controlled steel tank. A cool and slow fermentation was followed by 6 months of aging. Fresh Honeydew melon and lychee are front and center on the complex nose, with hints of powdered sugar, white flowers, and a pinch of pink grapefruit. Generous acidity greets the palate, balanced with the freshness of white peach and stone fruit, culminating in a mouthwatering finish of citrus and minerality that begs for another sip.
