Even ripening year with hot weather later in the season. This led to higher natural acidity in the grapes that were perfect for sparkling wine.
Grapes went direct to press. Pressed gently and cold settled. It was feremented cold and slow to retain the essence of our vineyards.
Our Rose Spumante is a dry and vibrant medium bodied rose that gives your tastebuds a mini tour of our vineyard. We harvested our Fiano, Pecorino and Montepulciano grapes whole cluster early in the season while the acidity was high with the purpose of making sparkling wine. We went direct to press with each of these grapes Fiano, Pecerino and Montepulciano pressing them lightly and leaving the Montepulciano on the skins to give it a brilliant pink color. Each of these grapes provide a different flavor profile the Fiano provides great aromas of honeydew while the Pecorino gives it a lime zest and the Montepulciano a raspberry finish. When all of these flavors are put together it makes the Rose Spumante a delicate yet medium bodied sparkling wine that has multi levels of flavors.
