TASTING NOTES

Freshly picked Rainier cherries with a strawberry field backdrop. Salted watermelon and mint salad. Lavender, wet rose, and wild raspberry. This dedicated Provençal style rosé has a vibrant, textured palate complemented by a lingering finish. This wine transports us without the price of airfare.


VINEYARD NOTES

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. 2023 was a stunner. A cool, wet vintage provided optimal growing conditions with physiological ripeness occurring at lower Brix and perfect chemistry at harvest.


WINEMAKER NOTES

The grapes were hand-harvested in the early morning to retain acidity, providing vibrancy in the wine. This year, we pulled solely from the Alban clone Grenache. The juice is then cool fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks to highlight the pure Lodi fruit expressions. The past few vintages have had some sprinkle blending but this vintage gave such a spot on profile, we left it untouched. The wine was then left sur lie until bottling to build texture.
