Winery Notes: "Our rosé harvest is always our first pick of the year, and we work delicately in the cellar to preserve the fresh energy of the just-ripened fruit. After a long, cold fermentation in stainless steel, the wine is vibrant and bright - pale pink and alive in the bottle. It tastes of this place, a sensory passage to the Scribe farm."
Vintage Notes: A dry winter with below average rainfall and a cool start to spring kept the vines dormant late into March. The spring months stayed dry and cool, slowing shoot growth and contributing to low yields and small berries. Once under full canopy later in the season, the fruit developed evenly with concentrated flavor, color and texture. Harvest began on August 13th with favorable, temperate weather throughout the picking season.
