Rosé from Sonoma County, California
Quivira’s estate-grown, single-vineyard Rosé boasts bright, fresh flavors and refreshing acidity due to the uncommonly wide swing between day and night temperatures, allowing fully ripe fruit while retaining exceptional natural acidity. In 2017, a near perfect growing season, culminated in a warming trend in late August and early September which compressed our normal 3-4 week Rosé harvest in half.
Immediately immerse yourself in the alluring classic salmon color, and first whiff of bright, pure, fresh red fruit. In the nose, aromas of crushed fresh strawberry are front-and-center from the Grenache base, followed by notes of pie cherry, pomegranate, and rhubarb. Flavors are intense and deep, echoing the nose and lingering in the long flavorful finish. The mouthfeel is smooth and round with mouthwatering, juicy acidity that lures you back for more. True sunshine in a bottle.
