2020 Rosé of Pinot Gris
Special Release, limited production.
Rosé is often produced as an afterthought…grapes that didn’t make the barrel for feature wines, leftover pickings that weren’t needed, etc.
Not this rosé.
Grown, picked and selected intentionally for rosé, these grapes were fermented in a concrete egg. The vineyard hales from the Klindt Vineyard in the Deep End of Anderson Valley, where the cool climate elevates peak ripeness but allows for lower alcohol production.
Total Cases Produced: 112
These rocky soils, coupled with the cold climate of the Deep End, cause the vines to struggle and naturally limit production to small amounts of intense fruit.
Planted in 1998
18 inches of heavy clay loam overlying a layer of fractured rock
Located in the Deep End
Farmer: Paul Ardzrooni
% Alc by Vol: 12.5%
