Notes of alpine strawberries, ocean mist and orange peels.
Picked for natural acidity and food tread to soak on the skins for 4 hours before being whole bunch pressed. The juice was settled overnight then barrel down to old French oak to ferment with native yeast & bacteria. The wine aged on lees for 7 months, bottled unfined and unfiltered with minimal sulfur.
This vintage of rosé comes from a newly planted and producing vineyard, Casa Contenta, located just west of the Topotero & Bassi Vineyard, in Avila Beach, within the SLO Coast AVA.
