Salmon pink in color, our Grenache Rosé is bursting with intoxicating aromas of ripe raspberries, strawberries & cream, Bing cherries, and salted watermelon. A dedicated Provençal style rosé with a textured, mineral driven palate that leads to a mouthwatering long finish.
Our estate vineyard is located in the Mokelumne River AVA and is certified under Lodi Rules for Sustainable Winegrowing. We have 1.5 acres of estate Grenache for our dedicated rosé. The cool nighttime breezes from the nearby Mokelumne River provides the grapes with ripe, fruity flavors and an excellent acid backbone. Again, we sourced some beautiful Cinsaut from Sprague vineyard. We picked just as the hot spell was ramping up to prevent any over ripe flavors, almost 2 weeks earlier than 2021.
The grapes were hand-harvested in the early morning to retain acidity, providing vibrancy in the wine. This year, we sourced solely from the middle block Alban clone Grenache. The juice is then cool fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks to highlight the pure Lodi fruit expressions. We blended the varietals during post fermentation racking. Along with Cinsaut, this years blend got a kiss of Bourboulenc to add salinity and mid-palate volume. The wine was then left sur lie until bottling to build texture.
Delicious fresh strawberries, decadent mascarpone and our Grenache Rosé . . . it just doesn’t get better. Recipe courtesy of David Scott Allen and featured in our May 2nd, 2021 Cook, Drink & Learn Mother’s Day episode 3.View Recipe
