2017 LEDGE MCA Rosé
James Berry Vineyard
Picked for the purpose of rosé on October 21st 2017, this block is almost entirely Counoise with a few stray Cinsaut clones peppered in. It is in the heart of the James Berry Vineyard on clay loam and limestone soils. The fruit was picked at dawn and immediately transferred to a bladder press where is was whole cluster pressed into a stainless steel fermenter. It was slowly fermented over the course of a few months and sterile filtered prior to bottling. There are also a select amount of 5 gallon kegs of this wine available for purchase.
This is a visually stunning coral colored wine with breathtaking floral aromatics of peach blossom and watermelon that delivers a kindred flavor of stone fruit, sweet melon and honeysuckle. The finish is extraordinarily long with beautifully integrated aspects of fruit, melon, refined acidity and flower nectar
