Adore Rosé 2015

Adore is a blend of Pinot Noir and Grenache grapes, specially chosen to make a Rosé style wine of the style of the great Rosé producers in the south of France.


Tasting Notes

The color is a medium pink rose due to the short contact time that the fermenting wine has with its grape skins. Adore shows a wonderful cranberry aroma followed on the palate by a burst of strawberry and a well structured finish.


Production Notes

The grapes are whole cluster pressed directly into a ferment tank, avoiding skin maceration and produced as a delicate pink wine. As the process progresses some skins are removed and the resultant wine is aged for about 11 months in neutral French oak Burgundy barrels.


Winemaker Notes

Adore is a blend of Pinot Noir and Grenache grapes, specially chosen to make a Rosé style wine. The color of a wine is extracted from the grape skins during fermentation. Like the top Rosé producers in the south of France, we prefer to ferment red grapes for Adore as we would a prized white wine. Here the grapes are whole cluster pressed directly into a ferment tank, avoiding skin maceration and produced as a delicate pink wine.
