2018 Pali Vineyard Rose of Pinot Noir
This Rosé, grown on our Pali Estate Vineyard in the Sta. Rita Hills appellation is made from 100% whole-cluster pressed, clone 777, Pinot Noir grapes. Planted in 2012, this 50-acre vineyard is located in Gypsy Canyon along the Hwy 246 Corridor and sits on a gentle, South-facing slope comprised mostly of sandy soils. These terroir characteristics, combined with cool temperatures, create excellent growing conditions for Pinot Noir. This wine is barrel-fermented and barrel-aged in 100% neutral French oak and bottled in April 2019.
