In 2021, we decided to craft a serious rosé that deserves discussion. Not an afterthought during harvest, but an intentional wine that was preconceived at the start of the growing season.

Built from our very own Pinot Noir vines, our rosé was orchestrated from a farm-first mentality. Designating areas of our vineyard that would be farmed distinctly for rosé, rather than for red wine.

Being that we are family farmed, we were able to do something quite special in regards to rosé during harvest. We picked three separate days to meet the needs of the skin contact necessary before sending the wines to press:

  • Dijon 114 picked 9/2/21: 18 hours skin contact
  • Dijon 667 picked 9/5/21: 24 hours skin contact
  • Wadenswil picked 9/7/21: direct press

After harvest & grape skin contact, the grapes were direct pressed (not saignée).

The Dijon 114 was fermented and aged separately in neutral French oak- a much slower ferment that caused in more weight & richness. The resulting flavors from the oak ferment ended up being the core notes of the wine with strong tropical notes, especially papaya. The Dijon 667 & Wadenswil were co-fermented in stainless steel. then racked into neutral oak to age- a much faster ferment which resulted in more peripheral flavors of strawberry & watermelon. Enjoy now or age.
