Vin Gris of Syrah
While Rosés now seem all the rage, this wine is my 17th version! While it might be tempting to expand production, I have continued to farm and make the rose with the same commitment for quality as always. It comes from the same vineyard blocks around the winery as last year’s, picked while the fruit is cold and whole cluster pressed as I do for my Chardonnay. The juice is fermented to zero sugar in barrel then aged there for another 5 months before bottling. It is again a fresh and delicate rose with wonderful fruit on the middle palate and a long finish. It is a fantastic wine to have during the Summer and Fall as it works with a very wide variety of foods and occasions. Drink now and in the next 12 months.
