2018 Estate Rosé of Chambourcin

Deep pink in color, the 2018 Rosé leads with notes of strawberries and cream, red currants, and cranberries on the nose along with a hint of vanilla and tart cherries. The palate delivers cranberries and ripe strawberries at the front with crisp acidity and a balanced mouthfeel and finishes with a long fruit feel of macerated berries.

Tasting Notes
The nose of the 2018 Rosé leads with notes of strawberries and cream, red currants, and cranberries along with a hint of vanilla and tart cherries. The palate delivers cranberries and ripe strawberries at the front with crisp acidity and a balanced mouthfeel and finishes with a long fruit feel of macerated berries.
Vineyard Notes
Chambourcin grapes were sourced from The Winery at Bull Run’s vineyards at Rock Mill in Little Washington, VA.
Production Notes
Picked, immediately destemmed, dumped into the press, and short squeezed to minimize color release. Fermented at 58F in stainless tanks, racked off lees, aged for five months in stainless steel, fined, filtered, bottled, and back sweetened to 0.5%.
Winemaker Notes
Our winemaker, Ashton, has a love for Provence-style rosés that inspired the 2018 Rosé Wine. The 2018 vintage lent itself to this style of wine. 2018 was a very wet year which meant the grapes had to be picked in a dry window. Consequently, the fruit stayed on the vine longer than intended for a true rosé which led to a higher pH, riper phenolics, and a higher concentration of color departing the grape skins during processing and pressing.
Food Pairing Notes
The 2018 Rosé pairs well with picnic spreads, spring pasta dishes with seafood, and white pizza topped with alfredo sauce and pickled red onion.
