grapefruit, cranberry, & white tea
100% of the fruit for this wine came from our Estate Vineyards located in the Horse Heaven Hills. These vineyards sit on a southeast slope above the Columbia River. The orientation of the blocks allows for morning sun exposure of the fruit, while avoiding the intense afternoon rays.
The fruit was machine harvested to allow for early color extraction from the skins. Once at the winery, the grapes were sent directly to the press. The free run juice was cold settled for 48 hours. The clean juice was racked away from the settled solids and inoculated with a yeast specifically selected for Rosé. The wine was fermented cool over a period of 30 days, allowing for great aroma development.
