2019 Cruel Summer Rosé

ACCLAIM

THE STORY

What would Summer be without bright, fresh, beautiful rosé? The answer is simple: cruel. Don’t let summer without good rosé happen to you!

The 2019 vintage consists of mostly Grenache, but does have about 20% Mourvèdre. Skin contact was brief, producing a lightly colored and elegant rosé.

VINTAGE NOTES

For 2019, we took a slightly different approach with our Cruel Summer Rosé. Made in a style reminiscent of a Provençal rosé, the goal was to highlight the beauty of the fruit. The grapes were pressed right after sorting, providing the wine with just a hint of color while retaining the freshness and vibrancy of the fruit. Fermentation and aging were done in stainless steel in keeping with the philosophy that the wine should be a pure expression of the fruit. Primary and secondary fermentation were taken to completion, awarding us with complex, lively, dry components for final blending. 2019 Cruel Summer is 78% Grenache and 22% Mourvèdre, pale pink in color with aromatics that leap from the glass.
