Adore Rose 2013

Adore Rosé is a delightful, rich, pink, dry rosé wine with plenty of power and balance.

Versatile and food-friendly, Adore is a charming blend of 35% Pinot Noir and 65% Grenache. 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 - delicious!

Everything a rosé should be!! Great color, great nose, great taste!

So versatile it can be served anywhere from fully chilled to room temperature.

This is a superb rosé that will pair well with the tastes of summer. Expect strawberries and spice and everything nice, with a decidedly dry, food-friendly finish.

Try Adore with our Sweet Beet Horseradish Mustard.

Serve chilled.

Winemaker Notes

The 2013 vintage exceeded our expectations on both quality and quantity. Rare as it was to have another fruitful year right after the record breaking 2012 crush, the quality across all varietals was also excellent.

The overall vigor of this growing season was high which required more canopy management and more vigilance with regard to pest abatement. The harvest began and finished early, the timing of crop maturity being dictated entirely by our canopy management practices and manually reduced crop load.

By addressing canopy management and green fruit harvesting early we were able to significantly reduce pest pressure and encourage early fruit ripening. The final wine quality in tank was excellent across the board for all varietals and appellations.
