2013

This Rosé is 100% Pinot Noir from Redwood Valley’s Hawkeye Ranch. Whole clusters were gently pressed to retain aromatics and bright acidity, additional complexity was gained by adding a 10% juice bleed after both the second and third days on the skins. The juice was then cold settled and the clear juice was fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel barrels. Upon the completion of primary fermentation, mouthfeel was enhanced by encouraging malolactic fermentation and performing battonage during maturation in neutral French Oak barrels.
