We’ve called our rosé wine Blush this year as it is a blend of Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris (rather than 100% Pinot Noir). This wine is an elegant, classic southern French-style rosé, tasting of cherries, cranberry, & sun-kissed strawberries. It is dry, but still juicy. Lovely strawberry lingers on the finish.

Description

We grow our Pinot Noir at our vineyard at the winery.  We also purchase from friends Mike and Arlene McInnis who lovingly tend their small vineyard of Pinot Noir and Sauvignette over on Stelly’s X’Road.    We grow mainly Dijon clone 115 which ripens a little earlier than many of the Pinot Noir clones.  We make a Rosé every year and choose our harvest date at a good balance of ripeness and acidity.  To give the wine its lovely color we destemmed and left the Pinot Noir and Gris juice on the skins and the seeds for around 24 hours, then we pressed and fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel tanks.
