At Shinn Estate Vineyards, growing a great wine is accomplished through gathering many diverse elements and combining them in harmony - Our vineyard practices are based on an ever-increasing diversity of plant material and beneficial insects. Our cover crop between vine rows contains as many as 25 species, while the vine plantings consist of numerous selections within each variety. We harvest and ferment our selections separately, blending them into a finished wine only after many blending trials. In the cellar, we use several French coopers for the barrels, and oak from several forests, all of which impart their individual aging characteristics to the Wine - From the vineyard floor to the bottle, our wines are the result of the diverse ecosystem we have created on the estate, coupled with meticulous winemaking and gentle aging in the cellar.

Fruit punch nose, very peachy and tropical. The mouth is dry, where pear and mango come out a bit more, and somewhat metallic. Very light overall.

this time I tasted right after the mulderbosch rose and did not enjoy it the same way. aromatics are of strawberry fruit with a minerality, slightly herbal. a little citrus like on the palate, acid more prevelant, sharper finish

Earthy nose with cherry highlights. Strawberry flavors with clean fruit flavors. Sharp mineral finish on raspberries. Refreshing.

Cherries on the nose with a soft layer of raspberry. Clean and mineral in the mouth with a nice tart raspberry finish. A nice example of what NY can do with a Rose.

Nice fragrant wine, very right with lots of floral notes on the nose. It's got a refreshing strawberry finish, with a hint of fresh-cut grass.

This dry rose evokes floral aromas with flavors of strawberry, raspberry, and watermelon. Squeaky clean and vibrant it is expressive and tantalizing. Take a bottle of this wine in one hand, a lobster roll in the other, and head straight to the beach!
