Our Discovery Rosé is balanced and diverse Rosé, ideally suited for sipping on the porch while the kids are out playing in the yard. Made in the Saignée style from Sangiovese, Grenache, Pinot Noir and Cabernet Sauvignon, it is certainly a unique blend in the world of wine. Saignée ("sohn-yay") in French means "to bleed" and is a method of "bleeding" off a portion of red wine juices. The resulting flavors from a saignée style of rosé will tend to be riper, which is the case here. We then fermented in stainless steel barrels to maintain secondary fruit aromas.
This wine shows a bright rhodolite color with a hint of copper. On the nose find aromas of fresh strawberries, white roses and orange peel. This wine is medium bodied with a weighty mouthfeel, find flavors of Rainier cherries and strawberries giving way to juicy kumquat. The finish is dry and shows balance and complexity with tart flavors of under ripe strawberries, Rainier cherries and red apple peel.
