2019 Vintage Cuvée Rosé
Blending goals for Vintage Cuvee Rose are always to strive to have harmony between fruit aromas and bottle aging autolytic characters. Organic Marechal Foch from the Windsor area was picked October 15 at 17 Brix to capture the bright cherry, strawberry notes, and signature natural acidity. A portion of the vineyard had deer damage early in the season which reduced sugar levels compared to previous vintages. All grapes were whole cluster pressed with light press yields.
Enjoy freshly disgorged for best enjoyment (direct from winery). Freshness and ample fruit will help develop this wine to its 8th birthday on the cork for more richness.
