2018 Brut RoséRegular price $55.00
Wild strawberry, raspberry, brioche, fresh & dry
The Carneros district sits adjacent to the San Francisco bay. Fog, wind, and the cold night time temperatures of this unique geographical area lend a distinctive regional identity to our Brut Rosé allowing for bright flavors, lip-smacking acidity and a crisp finish.
2018 delivered a late but incredible harvest. Beautiful weather during bloom allowed for a bounty of exceptional fruit. A cool, foggy summer with no heat events ensured slow even ripening, vibrant acidity and superb flavor development.
This bubbly beverage is produced using the Champagne Method (or Méthode Champenois for our Francophile friends). First there is primary fermentation, followed by some blending magic, then a secondary fermentation in bottle to give us those oh-so-delicate bubbles. After some time in the bottle, we finish the process with disgorgement of the yeast and a dosage (a super secret mixture) to finesse the wine to its final form. Those are a lot of fancy words in there, but leave that to us. All you really need to know is how to pop the cork off without losing any of the delicious liquid.
