Description

Vineyard Notes:

Bechthold Vineyard, Lodi CA – The oldest vineyard in the Lodi region, 25 acres of Cinsault planted in 1886. The old vines are head trained, organically grown and dry farmed. One side of the vineyard is bordered by a cement lined water canal, which seeps water into the soil. The old roots from the Cinsault vines that border this canal have drank from this water for decades. These vines have a larger crop and are naturally lower in brix, so perfect for rosé production. Cinsault is the king of Rosé varieties in Provence, producing elegant & sophisticated wines.

Vinification:

The Rosé is 50% saignée and 50% fruit picked specifically for Rosé. The juice is blended and fermented in stainless steel and 15% very neutral French oak barrels. The wine is aged on the lees for 6 months to enhance the rich mouthfeel typical of the Rosé wines in Provence.
