Rose all day
100% SAIGNEE ROSE
Saignee means the free run juice that comes from a red grape. No pressing at all, just a light crush and de-stem to release some juice and then it's drawn over to a separate tank to be fermented like a white wine.
This method creates a light and delicate rose, perfectly finished at fully dry or lightly off-dry. We have done our saignee with 100% Merlot grapes resulting in lively notes of strawberry and rhubarb. Look for these wines from us in the spring!
We're doing it! If you haven't heard about this type of wine yet it's because it hasn't hit the North American Market until recently. It's been described as a white wine for red wine drinkers.
It makes a lot of sense because it's actually made with white grapes but fermented and pressed on the skins just like red wine.
This style of winemaking gives the wine unique savoury notes and even tannins as in red wine. It will be an adventure for your tastebuds.
