2016 Lodi Corallina Grenache Rose
Ahhhh…Rosé of Grenache! A delicately colored red grape that offers itself willingly for the purpose of Rosé. Once these grapes have achieved perfect ripeness we harvest by hand and press the juice as soon as they arrive at the winery. The short time on the skins produces the lightest shade of pink in your glass. Juicy aromas of ripe strawberries, raspberries and cherries are lifted by subtle hints of minerality and spice. We ferment and age in small stainless steel barrels with a small percentage of neutral French oak barrels. This preserves the luscious fruit flavors while adding a hint of creaminess. Fresh and bright, with crisp acidity, this bone-dry pink is delicate in color but generous in flavor.
