Fresh and aromatic flavors of cassis, tea leaves, bergamot and citrus highlight the berry notes in this smooth and subtle rose. The creamy mousse enhances the rich mouthfeel and carries flavors of frais de bois and a hint of citrus on the long and pleasant finish.
Wine Maker Notes
“We use a number of techniques to promote appropriate acidity, minerality and aromatic qualities.” - Milla Handley
(88% Pinot Noir, 12% Chardonnay). The Pinot Noir fruit was crushed and macerated on its skins for four hours to extract color after which it was transferred to stainless steel tanks to compete fermentation. The Chardonnay was whole-cluster pressed to tank and fermented in barrel with battonage and full malolactic. The wine remained on its lees for several months to add complexity and depth and the blend aged for 19 months in bottle before disgorgement.
