Perfume is the name of the game with this Cinsaut Rosé. Aromas of honeydew melon, cantaloupe peel, papaya, white peach core, and cucumber jump out of the glass. The palate is light and lively and the finish lingering with a touch of saline. Perfect summer time wine.
Our only out sourced variety, we decided to experiment with Cinsaut before we plant 2 acres of our own. This fruit comes from the Sprague Family Vineyard in the Clements Hills-Lodi AVA, only a few miles down the road from our Estate Vineyard. Planted in 2018, this vineyard is characterized by “heavy red, ruddy, rocky loam” soils and rolling hills typical of the AVA. This young vineyard is pumping out some great fruit.
Cinsaut berries are known for their gelatinous pulp that supplies naturally low press yields. We hand sorted, whole cluster pressed, and the juice was fermented cool in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks to preserve pure fruit expressions. Sur lie aging in tank until bottling aides texture formation. We originally sourced this fruit to touch up our Grenache Rosé, but were so impressed with its aromatics, we decided it needed to stand on its own. 95% Cinsaut, 5% Grenache Noir
