Winemaking Notes: The grapes for this Central Coast Grenache and Syrah blend were sourced primarily from cool climate areas like Monterey and Santa Barbara County, and were picked at 21-23 brix for a high natural acidity that makes the wine ideal for summer drinking. The grapes were directly pressed to ensure as little extraction from the skins as possible. This is done to retain the delicate fruit aromas and pale color for which rosé is known. The final blend is a composition of many small fermentations, each treated individually with care.
Tasting Notes: Summer Water is a lean and refreshing rosé with notes of strawberry, pink grapefruit and white peach. Drink with summer-friendly fare like shellfish, ceviche and salads.
