2016 Rose de Grenache

Sonoma Valley California


Ravenswood winemaker Peter Mathis grows fruit for his Rose in the hills above the town of Sonoma from vines planted in 1999.  The grapes were whole-cluster pressed with minimal skin contact to allow for delicate extraction and then cold fermented for 28 days utilizing native yeasts before spending five months in a small stainless steel tank.  The result is a lovely fresh, dry Rose, pale salmon in color,  made in the classic Provencal style that  exudes aromas and flavors of crushed raspberries and watermelon with a soft, bright texture.  This little gem pairs well with lighter summer fare, grilled meats and spicier dishes.  Only 424 cases produced. 13% ABV DIR
