Rose 2018

For many years we have enjoyed Rosé on our travels to France and Italy. We asked ourselves, ‘Why isn’t this popular at home?’. We are so happy to see a Rosé renaissance everywhere. Enjoy this beautifully made wine anytime with lunch, poolside, picnicking or with your favorite friend! It is guaranteed to put a smile on your face.

The 2018 Castoro Rosé is SIP Certified and CCOF Certified Organic. The grapes came from two estate vineyards and is made predominantly out of Grenache and Zinfandel. Picked at reduced sugar content allows the alcohol to stay low and the acidity to shine in this rosé. This wine makes a great summer sipper and is very food friendly.

Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
2018 was an interesting year. A mild spring led to a favorable bloom and set period for the grapes. The summer had a high spell of 100-degree days for an extended period which pushed the ripening into high gear. After that the temperatures moderated, and the grapes came in over an extended period. Berries sized up and the yields were just slightly above our estimates. Great color and extraction all around!

Winemaker Notes
The cold picked grapes went straight to press and pressed lightly as to not extract heavy tannin or color. The juice goes through a long cold ferment as to preserve the aromatics, fermented and stored in stainless steel tanks for up to 6 months before bottling. The wine opens with aromas of peach and strawberry followed by citrus peel and white flowers. On the palate flavors of strawberry and white peach dominate with subtle hints of raspberry. A balanced crisp acidity makes this wine a great summer sipper and food friendly wine.
