Vineyard

While it is never easy to compensate for Mother Nature’s peculiarities, this wine is undoubtedly enhanced by the work we did in the vineyard. The vines for this Rose are now 44 years old, own rooted and grown on a Lyre trellis system. The crop was thinned to encourage even ripening and more concentrated fruit flavors. North/south row orientation ensures even sun exposure from dawn to sunset.

Winemaking

At McIntyre our winemaking techniques are minimalistic. We endeavor to let the beautiful fruit shine through with limited intervention. The grapes for this Rose were harvested and hand-sorted in the early morning hours. Primary and malolactic fermentations were carried out with the wild, indigenous yeast and malolactic bacteria that naturally thrive in the vineyard.

Tasting Notes
If this rose were a poem, it would be a limerick, rather than an epic tome. The goal here is fun and easy, not dense and solemn. Fresh, crisp and raucous, it exudes a cavalcade of fresh blueberry, cherry, watermelon, rhubarb and currant. On its own or served with fowl or fish – we highly recommend it with fresh salmon – our 2015 Rose of Pinot Noir is one of the most pleasurable wines you will ever taste.
