Our 2013 Rosé of Pinot Noir incorporates fruit from two of the prized Pinot Noir vineyards we work with. Fruit from the Luminous Hills Vineyard is all Pommard, providing voluptuous texture and fruit. The Armstrong vineyard Wadenswil and 777 blocks were chosen for their richness and depth. The selection of the fruit is from blocks that are farmed for Rosé, picked separately, macerated for eight days at very cold temperatures, and then pressed off and fermented in neutral French oak barrels, and then aged for six months before bottling. The result is truly the whole being greater than the sum of the parts, delivering a complex and ageable Rosé that rewards with food, but is tempting as well for that summer refresher.
