Description
 
We are very excited to release our 2020 "Gold Dust Vineyard" Rose', as our first estate wine release! This inaugural estate rose' was made from 52% Tempranillo and 48% Primitivo grapes (dry farmed), which lend both savory and fruity notes to this fun and complex wine. Our Estate Rose' opens with savory aromas of tomato leaf, leading into flavors of under ripe wild strawberries, sweet tobacco, and watermelon, and finish off with a lingering fresh minerality.

Only 54 cases produced.

GOLD DUST ESTATE VINEYARD - FAIR PLAY AVA

Our organically farmed Gold Dust Estate Vineyard is situated in the Sierra Foothills of El Dorado County on top of a 2500' ridge composed entirely of decomposed granite soils. Granite, which is derived from cold quartz and magma, give the soil a high pH content, which promotes fresh acidity our estate wines as well as well-draining soils that stress the vines to focus their energy into the grapes. The ridge line yields an abundance of warm and direct sun exposure, while the elevation provides a cooling element at night, that allows for the slow and even ripening of the grapes. A truly special place to grow low-yielding, high quality wine grapes.

WINEMAKING
We lightly direct pressed our Primitivo and Tempranillo into 50% old French Oak barrels and 50% stainless steel where it fermented and aged on the lees for 8 months before bottling without fining or filtering.
