Tasting Notes

Wine Making Notes

The grapes are grown in Lodi, the self-proclaimed Zinfandel Capital of the world This rosé was made by cool maceration of the Zinfandel grapes over several hours to aid extraction of colour and flavour, followed by a cool fermentation, and leaving some of the grapes natural sugars unfermented resulting in a fruity rosé with a degree of sweetness.
