We press the grapes as cold clusters to capture their bright fruit characters. A small portion of syrah undergoes minimal skin contact to give the wine a kiss of color. Fermentation and brief aging in predominantly stainless steel-with a small amount in neutral French oak barrels-enhance the complexity of this vibrant wine.
"Vin de Porche-no accent required-is a traditional dry rosé, and true to its name, it's meant to be enjoyed on the porch or patio. Pinot noir grapes from our companion vineyards in Anderson Valley give this wine delicate aromas of strawberry and bright, refreshing acidity."
