Captûre Wines Red Bordeaux Blend Alexander Valley Dark Rose 2009
With multi-generational experience from Château Latour, our winemaking team understands the methods behind crafting classic Bordeaux-style Rosé with intense fruit from hillside vineyards harvested at peak ripeness. After meticulous hand-sorting and de-stemming, the skins, the juice and the seeds macerate together for 12-hours to enhance the characters and perfect color of the wine. We then bleed part of the juice for a long fermentation in stainless steel barrels between 55 and 60° F to emphasize the brilliant fruit and maintain optimum acidity. The fully fermented wine is aged sur lie for 10 months, with extensive stirring during the first two months to reinforce its bright fruit expression and improve mouth-feel.
