2020 Risque Rose

Slide into summer with this sultry rosé. She is perfumed with scents of strawberries and hibiscus tea. Risqué then bares it all with notes on the palette of sun ripened stone fruit and wild cherries. Fruity upfront, yet elegant with a herbal, fresh edge on the finish. Crisp acidity and a supple mouth feel are sure to make this wine your favorite, into the late hours of those long summer evenings

Production notes

Saigner, pronounced - sown - knee (my interpretation, not Webster's), which means to bleed in French. When we bring in our red grapes, sometimes we'll "bleed" or drain some of the clear juice to intensify the remaining red wine. There is some color that comes from the skins during the production process, so that's where the slight pink comes from. We then ferment the clear juice as a white wine, very cold and slow. This is a blend of Cab, Merlot and Petit Verdot. So just a few of the red Bordeaux varietals. Since the grapes all ripen at different intervals, we are continually adding fresh juice to the fermentation tank as each varietal comes in for production. The fermentation can take over two months to complete. The result is a rich, complex rose' that is perfect for any summer outing.
