Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2019 Grenache Rosé presents luscious, summery aromas of peach, watermelon, floral citrus and sliced almond. A soft texture delivers fresh flavors of strawberry, grapefruit and tangerine, all accentuated by a sense of cool minerality. Tangy acidity adds zest to a clean, quenching finish.
Vineyard Notes
The 35-acre Brick Barn estate vineyard lies just north of the Santa Ynez River in a largely unexplored winegrowing corridor near the city of Buellton in the western Santa Ynez Valley. The 2019 Grenache Rosé comes from Block 17, which is planted to clone 136. Here, Winemaker Adrian Bolshoi picked the fruit at 20° Brix on October 2 for dedicated rosé production. This early pick ensured a foundation of fresh natural acidity and fresh fruit flavors in the resulting wine. Block 17 is planted to an upper highland at an elevation of 550 feet. Here, rocky loam and limestone soils impart excellent fruit intensity. The vineyard rows are planted in an east-west orientation, allowing for ample sun exposure balanced by cooling ocean breezes.
Production Notes
Our aim is to produce a dry rosé that balances crisp European-style elegance with bright Santa Ynez Valley flavors. The fruit was night harvested and pressed immediately to achieve a brilliantly delicate rosé hue. The juice was cold settled for three days, then racked and fermented in stainless steel. Winemaker Adrian Bolshoi added the yeast at 55 degrees, foregoing cold fermentation to ensure that the finished wine would be bone dry in true Provençale fashion. After fermentation, the wine was racked off the lees and cold aged in stainless steel to maintain delicate aromatics, bright flavors and textural crispness.
Winemaker Notes
Inspired by the classic Provençale rosés of Southern France, our 2019 Grenache Rosé is wine of abundant freshness and purity.
