Farming: Sustainable

Winemaker: Doug Margerum

Grapes: Grenache, Counoise, and Syrah

Terroir: Limestone hillsides and gravelly alluvial flatlands 

Vinification: These grapes are picked specifically for the rosé production, then crushed and immediately pressed to stainless steel tanks for a long, cold fermentation. The wine is blended with various lots of Counoise, Syrah and other Grenache lots that were saignée-d. Saignée is a winemaking process where we bleed off a portion of slightly pink juice from a red must right after crush. The wine is filtered and bottled early to capture brightness and vibrancy. 

Tasting Notes: Aromas of strawberries and watermelon with a hint of chalky minerality. On the palate the wine is dry and crisp, with notes of wild, brambly strawberries and fresh cut summer herbs.
