Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Planted in 1999 and farmed organically from the outset, our CCOF-certified Skid Row Vineyard is the westernmost block on the Saracina Ranch Vineyards, marked by black clay and gravelly soils at the base of the foothills. We harvested the Malbec at sunrise on September 9, 2016.
Production Notes
The fruit was harvested especially for our Rose' program, destemmed, and the whole berries transferred directly into the press for a two-hour soak, then pressed gently to tank. The settled juice was fermented to dryness in small stainless barrels and tanks. The barrel and tank lots were assembled with fine lees in December and left on those lees until two weeks prior to bottling in March 2017.
Winemaker Notes
Our beautifully pale-hued 2016 Skid Rose' is our most charming version to date, with subtle, barely ripe strawberry, peach pit, and citrus notes. Coming in at just 12.9% alcohol, and reminiscent of a classic Provencal Rose', it is engaging and satisfying yet light on its feet.
Food Pairing Notes
Rose' is the perfect patio wine for summer barbecues since it pairs so well with tomato salads, almost any cheese, grilled seafood or sausages, not to mention with a simple summer dessert of sliced fresh fruits. With its versatility of flavors, our Rose' should find a place at any Thanksgiving table as well.
