Saignee – “To Bleed” – this is how we collected the juice for this rosé, from bleeding the tanks of our top red varietals on the day we crushed them into tank.  We start with Tempranillo, Mourvedre, Syrah, Petite Sirah, just to name a few, and then we saignee the juice from the tank. We then combine all the varietals together and ferment them as if they were white wine, nice and cold. It is a perfect choice for red wine drinkers in the summer or white wine drinkers that want a more bodied wine for food.

Aromatics:  Deep florals of violet, peach and raspberry

On the palate: Cherry and red fruit with herbal notes of lavender and roses.

Saignée, a French term meaning “to bleed” is the process we used to create our winery exclusive rose. Limiting skin-to-juice contact we “bleed off” 5 -10% of the juice from the red varietals. This juice is cold fermented, retaining florals bright fruits.
