Bright strawberry and lemon highlights with a precision and freshness that often is wanting in rosé wines.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Bright strawberry and lemon highlights with a precision and freshness that often is wanting in rosé wines. This rosé is made from a selection of Lingua Franca Estate fruit whose pedigree comes through even in this fresh, stainless steel fermented and aged wine. There is a mineral undertone beneath the crisp, bright surface of pomegranate and raspberry.
Vineyard Notes
The 2021 growing season started off with an ice storm and then progressed to a misty spring, but no damage was done to flowering. We experienced a late but healthy fruit set. At the end of June, the Valley suffered its historic “Heat Dome” event of 116 degrees Fahrenheit. However, the resiliency of the soils at the Lingua Franca Estate Vineyard allowed our vines to ripen undeterred. The weather for the rest of the summer was moderate and harvest commenced with a large crop of fruit in excellent condition, unthreatened by rain or heat. We thought it would be lovely to make some estate-grown rosé again, the first time we’ve produced rosé since 2016.
Production Notes
The Ponzi Heritage Block, Pommard-clone Pinot Noir from our most productive block on the Lingua Franca Estate has always made complex, round wines with an exuberance of red cherry and rose-petal flavors. Our team hand-harvested the fruit for this wine earlier than they harvested the grapes for our red wines to preserve the freshness of the finished wine. The end result is a very bright and mouthwatering rosé. It was fermented with natural acidity and wild yeast in stainless steel tanks.
Food Pairing Notes
This is a great wine for entertaining friends, with a platter of charcuterie or cheese, light shellfish hors d’oeuvres, fried calamari or other snacks. It is elegant enough to enjoy with grilled salmon or would pair beautifully with a clam linguini. But it is also a bit more serious than most rosés and therefore can be served with Bouillabaisse, langoustines, sautéed prawns, or fresh Dungeness crab with drawn butter. It will be a good companion to a Thai red curry with shellfish or chicken or a Laotian chicken or Duck Larb, and it excels with a crispy Vietnamese crêpe (Banh Xeo).
