2019 Casteñada Rosé

2019 Casteñada Rosé

Stunning in color and invigorating on the palate, there’s nothing more refreshing or fitting for warm weather. We craft this gem using the saignée method from the field blend of Rhône red and white varietals that comprise our Casteñada Red. After processing, we allow skin-to-juice contact overnight to develop the key characteristics of fresh strawberry flower and golden raspberries. This vibrant rosé embodies the lush aromatics of Marsanne, Grenache Blanc and Viognier, while Syrah and Grenache provide the perfect backbone. A fleeting summer treat!

More Information
In winemaking, we love it when there is little to talk about with the weather. Weather events usually mean problems in the vineyard be it frost, not enough rain, too much rain, wind, heat and so on. While 2019 did see us have record flooding of the Russian River and other local tributaries in February, the timing of that event during vine dormancy and the fact that our vineyards are at elevation on hillsides kept us out of harms way. The growing season was generally mild and as fruit started to mature on the vine, we saw unseasonably cool weather in August and Semptember, allowing us to pick our fruit without the pressure of any oncoming heat wave or rain event. Upon receiving the grapes into the winery, we were able to capture both the subtlty and nuance as well as the intensity of flavor that comes with the fruit being able to hang on the vine during those final cool months. We are excited for the tremendous quality that is certain to show itself with this "quiet" weather vintage.
