2018 Les Printemps

Grenache Rosé

Aromatics of strawberries, crushed roses, stone fruits, nectarine, and fresh herbs; marjoram and thyme. Bright coppery salmon in color. On the palate, strawberry fruit with a tangerine acidity. Very round texture with a nice mouth feel, this wine lingers on tongue, mid and back palate. Lasting raspberry finish.

Grenache’s thin skin and pale coloring makes its well suited for the production of full bodied, rosé wines. Grenache is the principal grape behind the rosés of Tavel and Lirac and its plays an important role in Provence as well.

The Grenache was picked from the lower half of the Grenache blocks 14 and 15 which is more proximate to the water table. Four bins went straight to press and were pressed off whole cluster by midnight Saturday. Two bins were foot stomped and left on the skins until Sunday morning. All six bins were pumped to a stainless tank where they underwent two days of cold settling and racked off their solids. Fermentation occurred in stainless tanks for about three weeks at 58-60 °F. The wine was left on fine lees without batonnage for ten weeks.
