This rosé has fine bubbles and brilliant acidity with notes of strawberry and rhubarb, tart cranberry, and just a hint of brioche.
Half the block was picked and destemmed, then combined with the second half of the block picked the following day after 24 hours of skin contact. The grapes were pressed and fermented in a stainless steel tank before it was bottled at the tail end of its primary fermentation. Bottled unfiltered and contains lees.
Wine was made from all estate grown, Demeter Certified Biodynamic Pinot Noir grapes. These grapes are farmed from Block 3, a small Northwest facing section of the vineyard planted to clone 667, specifically for this wine.
