A light and lifted rosé made from Carignan grapes. Expect notes of white fruit and citrus; tangy with a soft bitterness.

Variety: Carignane
Vineyard: Del Barba Vineyard
Location: Contra Costa County, CA
Alcohol: 11.8%
Production: 130 cases

This is a pure expression of the grapes’ naturally high acidity. Light red fruits, orange zest, white strawberries, white cherries, nectarines and tangerine. Just fresh pressed juice with a tangy backbone and a light bitterness.

Fruit went direct to press and fermented 14 days. Aged 8 months on lees in stainless steel. Minimalist winemaking with low sulfur and low alcohol.

Made from Carignan grown in the sandy soils at Contra Costa’s famous Del Barba Vineyard. The Del Barba Family has been farming vineyards in and around Oakley since the early 1900s. Vineyards are farmed in pure Delhi sand with little intervention and even less water. The old Del Barba Ranch on Rose Avenue in Oakley, with its centennial center block of Carignane, Mataro (otherwise known as Mourvèdre), and Zinfandel, is surrounded by a block of ‘juvenile’ 30-year-old Zinfandel, which is where the Erggelet brothers pick their Carignane and Zinfandel. The fruit from the rosé comes from this vineyard as well.
