Andrew Murray Esperance Rose 2018$26.00Add to cart
Andrew Murray Vineyards estate vineyard, the Curtis Vineyard, is planted to about 50 acres of a great selection of Rhone varieties, including a variety that is particulary well suited to Rosé production – Cinsault. It makes up many of the delicious, light, and dry Rosé bottlings that remind folks of sunny breezy days spent in the south of France (even if you have never been there). The grapes were all harvested at peak Rosé maturity (early, with a lower sugar and brighter acid), in the middle of the night, and then quickly foot stomped to help start the color extraction process. The mashed grapes were then transferred to a cold room to macerate overnight. At first light the next day, the grapes were gently pressed off skins and fermentation was encouraged to start asap, in 100% stainless steel. The wine was aged in the same tank, on lees, choosing to only pump it once, as it was transferred to bottle. The resulting wine is wonderfully light, yet complex, and full of personality. Yes, there are plenty of fruity notes, but this is definitely not a kool-aid Rosé of yesteryear from California. Rather, it is very much in the moment. The Andrew Murray Esperance Rosé 2018 is crisp, light, dry and perfect for any meal! This will be your go to wine this summer! 750 cases made!

Banshee Rose 2018$25.00Add to cart
The decision to shift their vineyard sourcing to Mendocino County and expand the palette of varietals they work with for Banshee Rosé proved to be one of their best. The deliciousness and ensuing popularity of the wine last year was phenomenal, the only problem being that they sold out way too soon. Grenache, including some ancient Grenache Gris, dominates the blend providing complex, red fruit flavors and juicy body. This is reined in by Barbera’s tension with a spine of acidity while Syrah contributes a sense of ballast. The Pinot Noir (from a biodynamic vineyard) blends bright red berries and floral aromatics. White peach, citrus, and apricot blossom aromas unfold onto the palate with blood orange, rhubarb and pomegranate flavors. Lively acidity with great tension and verce with a chalky, saline quality.

Scharffenberger Brut Rose$33.00Add to cart
Scharffenberger Brut Rosé Excellence is made by the méthode traditionelle process, whereby the wines are individually bottle-fermented before being riddled and disgorged. Most of the base wines underwent malolactic fermentation, which softens and rounds out the blend. The grapes are sourced from their vineyards in the Anderson Valley as well as other premium quality vineyards in Mendocino County with whom they have long term contracts. This type of vineyard selection allows them to choose from the best vineyards in the area, which enables us to produce our trademark cuvée. The fruit balance and color are achieved by adding between four and five percent of Pinot Noir wine to the blend before undergoing second fermentation in the bottle.
The wine has a pale salmon hue with integrated aromas of fresh raspberry jam and wild strawberries on a cream covered pastry base. The flavors are layered, round, fresh, fruity and long.
