Our Decoy Rosé was inspired by the great Rosés of Provence. Unlike many Rosés, which are made as a byproduct of bleeding off juice from red wine fermentations, the grapes for this wine were specifically harvested at lower Brix to make a dry Rosé. To further preserve the wine’s beautiful aromatics, pure fruit flavors and crisp refreshing mouthfeel, it was fermented entirely in stainless steel.
Varietal Composition: 56% Syrah, 20% Vermentino, 16% Carignan, 8% Grenache; 100% stainless steel and 100% direct press
This crisp and elegant Rosé displays enticing aromas of fresh-picked strawberries and honeydew melon, along with hints of orange blossom and guava. On the palate, it is bright and balanced, with layers of vibrant fruit and subtle notes of minerals and spice.
Throughout California, the 2019 growing season provided picture-perfect growing conditions. Following a cool, wet winter and spring, summer brought perfectly temperate weather that created exceptional flavor development in the grapes. Warm weather during harvest ensured ideal ripeness, resulting in dynamic whites with beautiful energy and complexity, and lush and flavorful reds with deep colors and lovely intensity.
