Winemaking Notes: The 2020 Rosé Alors was picked over a one week period in mid-September. Everything was direct pressed into both tank and puncheon for primary and secondary fermentation. The finished wine was aged on the lees, and racked once over the winter. It was then bottled unfined and unfiltered. The wine rested for 9 months in bottle before release.
Tasting Notes: Wonderful aromas of pink grapefruit, some herbs, and pomegranate. In the mouth, it is medium-bodied and generous with strawberries and blood orange flavors. Lots of minerals show on the finish with good grip. It is a lovely summertime wine!
