Pali, 2020 Rose of Pinot Noir 'Pali Vineyard Natural'
We picked the Pinot Noir grapes for this wine on a late summer morning from Pali Vineyard in the Sta. Rita Hills. The grapes were stomped by foot, whole-cluster, and then left in skin-contact for 3 hours before pressed. Only native, natural yeast with no additives throughout the wines élevage and less than 20 PPM sulfur added at bottling. This wine is unfined and unfiltered. Iridescent pink with sparkling haze gives way to spicy strawberry, guava, lime leaf, crushed oyster shell and salted plum.
