2017 Angels & Cowboys Rosé

WINEMAKER NOTES

Angels & Cowboys Rose is made with winemaking techniques similar to those in the south of France, the epicenter for Rose. We harvest grapes at 21 ° brix and a pH below 3.35, this early harvest retains the natural acidity, creating a wine style both racy and ethereal. The grapes were hand-harvested and whole cluster pressed to minimize color extraction and create a wine of unrelenting delicacy. 

Once the juice is pressed from the grapes, it undergoes a slow, cool fermentation. Upon completion of fermentation, the Rose is aged on its yeast lees for a little over two months, creating a bit more depth and mouthfeel. 

Angels & Cowboys Rose is classic Oeil de Perdrix. The color is that of a champagne diamond. It has delicate aromas suggesting light mandarin, pomegranate blossoms and wildflowers. On the palate, the wine is lively and racy with flavors of tart cherries and minerals. The A & C Rose displays vibrant acidity, freshness in the mid-palate, and great delicacy in the finish.This wine is to enjoy with or without food accompaniment. 

A Grenache based blend.
