Style

With the prole of a classic French Loire Valley dry rosé, this wine presents a beautiful balance of fruit avors, refreshing acidity, and a clean, crisp finish. On the palate you get bright red fruits of cherry, watermelon, lime and strawberry which continue to a crisp, dry nish of minerals, white flowers and savory herbs classically found in Cabernet Franc Rosé.

 

Pairing

The balance of fruit and acidity in this wine lends itself to a wide variety of food pairings – from goat cheese, BBQ or pizza, to sushi, salmon or tuna, or even chicken, turkey and ham, this wine can do it all, year round. And don’t forget the spring / fall Holidays, where it’s a perfect, festive fit!

Process

First the grapes were crushed and cold soaked for 22 hours. The lot was fermented in stainless steel tanks with two different yeasts to enhance the final aroma and flavor profile, balancing acidity while maintaining a crisp dry character to the wine. After cool temperature fermentation, it rested on a small amount of lees for a few weeks to extract extra aromas and give the wine its prolonged finish. It was then simply rested and bottled. Vegan.
