5 months in stainless
2017 Rosé of Carmine
Featured in the May 2018 issue of Oregon Wine Press, "The Changeup: Little Red, Big Taste"
This wine is very fruity on the nose, with nectarines, strawberries, candied cherries, and hints of rose hips and cucumber. The light texture is lifted by the bright acidity, and flavors of watermelon, cranberry and a hint of white pepper mingle on the palate.
The grapes were harvested by hand, sorted, and destemmed. After a two-day cold soak, the grapes were pressed and the juice was settled and racked to stainless for fermentation. After fermentation was complete, the wine aged on the fine lees until bottling the following spring.
