2019 Sparkling Rosé
2019 was a wet cool growing season aggravated by Hurricane Dorian in September which snapped several end posts but left the vineyard relatively unscathed. Thankfully a long frost-free fall fully ripened grapes for sparkling. We made the decision to not make any red wine – those grapes were picked for sparkling and a special small lot appassimento dessert wine.
The season gave us this uniquely fruit forward sparkling made from organic Marechal Foch grown in Falmouth on loam-clay soil. Gentle whole cluster pressing in a champagne bladder press extracted the minimal pigment and phenolics that are showcased. Dominant berry aromas follow to a long structured finish with juicy berry nuances.
