2012 North Block Blend Dry Rose’

2012 NBB Rose 2Our northern vineyard consists of three blocks – three varieties of grapes that were chosen and planted with this in mind – a field blend of Sangiovese, Cabernet Franc and Malbec.  We were thinking of a red, of course (and more to come on that in a couple of years), but on 3 October 2012 some of each were showing a perfect balance for a rose’.  We took advantage of the situation, sprinted the grapes up the hill into the crusher, and immediately into the press.

We like our wines dry, and that’s what you’ll notice with this rose’.  It’s a classic refreshing example of what happens if you keep your center of gravity over your feet so you’ll be able to make the most out of any situation – in this instance 48 cases of an estate grown, produced and bottled illustration of determination.  Read more about this wine on the “Our Wine” page, and come sample some any weekend at our tasting patio.
