Alexander Valley Vineyards Sangiovese Rose

Product Description

The release of our dry Rosé of Sangiovese is always one of the first signs of spring for many wine lovers. This wine is always a crowd favorite with vibrant color, an enticing nose and bright fruit flavors. It was a textbook growing season in Northern California with more heat accumulation days than in previous years. Yields were well above the record lows of last year. After de-stemming, the fruit was cold soaked for about 5 hours, until the color was just right. We drained off the juice, dug out the skins, and then pressed, using a new press program this year with fewer rotations and a 20 minute reduction in total time. The juice went back into tank and settled for 2 days at 40 degrees before it was racked and yeast inoculated with a French isolate yeast. A slow cold fermentation followed to preserve the bright aromatics and fruit flavors. AVV's Rosé has been recognized by critics and wine lovers as one of the best in the country. When compared to the 2011, this vintage is slightly lighter in color with a light pink salmon hue. Aromas of wild strawberry, watermelon, raspberry and mint jump out of the glass. There are flavors of strawberry, peach, berry and a hint of minerality. The wine has medium mouthfeel and a dry finish with a very long aftertaste. California.
