2016 Rosé of Carignan (375ml - $10)
‘Mitchell Jacks Block.’ Planted in 1977, 4 acre block at 860ft. elevation. Head trained and dry farmed vines, organically farmed. 5th generation farmers, the land has been in the Poor Family since the late 1800s.
Harvested on September 13, 2016, destemmed and then whole cluster pressed into stainless steel tanks. Cold soaked for 3 days until primary fermentation started naturally with native yeasts. We prevented the rosé from going through malolactic fermentation. The wine was aged in stainless steel tank until it was canned on February 8, 2017.
Aromas of persimmon, rhubarb, orange and Fuji apples with flavors of watermelon, plums and blood orange.
