Cupcake Dry Rose 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

The grapes for this delightful Rosé was harvested at optimal maturity, directly pressed and then cold settled. Each varietal went through a separate cold vinification between 52°F to 62°F. After fermentation, the grapes were placed in stainless steel barrels and were blended prior to bottling.

Our winery is located in Monterey County, California where warm days give way to cool nights as the fog rolls in off of the Pacific Ocean. It’s this cooling influence that slows the growing process, increasing the time the grapes “hang” on the vine and thereby allow our grapes to mature a little slower than in hotter regions. Slow growth and cool weather leads to a more balanced level of acids and sugars, thereby adding to the complexity and structure of the wines of the Central Coast. This region is poised to become one of the newest and most exciting viticultural opportunities in the coming years. This slow pace continues in our cellar where we take the time to craft wines that are complex, rewarding and hand made. Gentle pressing, cool fermentation, malolactic fermentation, and long barrel aging in small barriques allow us to elevate our wines so that they are rich, creamy and downright delicious. Our winemaker, Adam Richardson has since added a few additional wines from other cool climate regions to augment our portfolio and match up with additional cupcake profiles, like our Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, Yakima Valley Riesling, and Mendoza Malbec. Go ahead, live deliciously. Read less

Tasting Notes:

Our Dry Rosé comes from the finest vineyards of the Côtes de Provence region in southern France, where the grapes are delicately fermented in stainless steel. Refreshing aromas of rose petals and hints of wild lavender with flavors of strawberry and white peach are found in this wine. Try this wine paired with a summer salad with turkey and cranberries or tomatoes Provençale.

The grapes for this delightful Rosé was harvested at optimal maturity, directly pressed and then cold settled. Each varietal went through a separate cold vinification between 52°F to 62°F. After fermentation, the grapes were placed in stainless steel barrels and were blended prior to bottling.
