The 2020 Rose is 100% Grenache and opens with intense aromas of strawberries, distinctive notes of stone fruit, a zesty splash of grapefruit and lime, and touches of minerality. The first sip is sublime with more red fruit bursting forth, followed by a bright acidity of fresh grapefruit that lingers to the finish. A poolside winner.
The Annadel Gap Vineyard is a special place. Located between Mt. Hood and the Sonoma Mountains, our site is characterized by thick morning fog and strong afternoon winds. Alluvial, glacial, and sedimentary influences create a wide array of soil types. Ideal growing conditions, varied soils, and our minimal-impact farming methods yield precise, balanced fruit.
The fruit was hand-harvested at night and whole-cluster pressed. The juice was stainless steel fermented at a cool temperature to preserve freshness and aromatics. Undergoing malolactic fermentation, it was aged in stainless steel and then gently fined and filtered.
