Winemaker Notes
The 2023 rosé is a direct to press rosé, which means that the red grapes used to make this rosé were harvested specifically for the rosé and pressed in the wine press as it is done in white wine production. This dry rosé is made entirely from Malbec grapes, which provide the beautiful Salmon pink shade and delectable aroma. The grapes were handled in a semi-anaerobic fashion; once the fruit arrived at the winery it was weighed and immediately loaded into the press as whole clusters. The grapes were then pressed, and the juice was pumped to a tank to be cold settled. Cold settling is a process to chill the newly pressed juice to 40-50F for 2-3 days. The cold temperature helps the sediment in the juice settle to the bottom of the tank. Once this happened, the juice was then racked off the lees or sediment to very old neutral French oak barrels for fermentation where it aged for the next 4 months. It was pumped out of barrels to tank just prior to bottling.
