Hanna Rose 2018 750ML
Vineyards: Our Sonoma Rosé is crisp and lively and captures the exuberance that fills harvest’s early days. The 2018 vintage was sourced from several Russian River Valley vineyards.
Rose Vintage 2018: Moderate temperatures (aside from a brief heat spike in June), adequate rainfall, and no frost pressure set the stage for even maturation of early season cultivars. Fruit for this Rose was picked Sept 6 through 14. The fruit averaged 22.7 o Brix, 0.92 TA and 3.06 pH at harvest.
Winemaking: Our Rose was cold pressed to minimize color extraction and fermented cool to retain the vibrancy and freshness of the fruit. Bottled in its youth with minimal handling, this dry Rosé has a vibrant natural acidity and low alcohol, bottled at 12.0% Alc, TA 0.72 mg/L and pH 3.07.
Tasting Notes: A vibrant coral pink in color with aromas and flavors that are reminiscent of nectarine, watermelon, white lily, rose garden and wild strawberries. Texturally, it is delicate, racy and effortless with a juicy, mouthwatering and lingering finish (Tasted 2-8-19)
We grow and vinify our Rosé to be fresh, vibrant, and evocative of the grapes themselves. We have chosen a screwcap closure— unsurpassed in its ability to retain our wines exuberance. Our Rosé is bottled with minimal handling shortly after fermentation; therefore, it retains some naturally-produced carbon dioxide which is responsible for the slight effervescence. Please note that proper conservation requires cool, even temperatures and the absence of light.
