Lively and vibrant the wine has a purity of fruitiness, a weave of grapefruit, mandarin orange, herbs de Provence, sea breeze minerality ending in a prolonged, invigorating citrusy-melon tang. At its best served cold, drink now through 2019.

The definition of Rosé in America has changed radically in recent years. No longer a sugar tinged pink quaffer, it is now approached by serious winemakers as the ultimate expression of white wine from red grapes. Rosé wines have long been appreciated in Provence and the Mediterranean coast for their salivating freshness, sheer deliciousness, and range of personalities. A “purpose made” wine at Adelaida, fruit is grown and picked especially to be crafted as a Rosé. Blessed with a Mediterranean-like climate five traditional Rhone varieties are emphasized, all sourced from our mountain vineyards. Harvested at an intermediate ripeness (20 Brix), the red grapes are hand sorted and quickly moved to a bladder press and gently crushed to separate the juice from the pulp and skins. This ensures its snappy flavor profile and crisp natural acidity emphasizing freshness. Co-fermented with indigenous yeast in a combination of small batch neutral oak barrels. The final blend is assembled after 6 months.
