2016 Ancient Vines Mourvèdre Rosé

$17
Club Price: $13.60

Mourvèdre is a rare grape in California and we produce four distinct bottlings: two rich, red table wines, a chewy dessert wine and this lovely Rosé with hints of pomegranate, cherry and plum.

100-year-old vineyards in Oakley grow in deep, sandy soil along the delta of the San Joaquin and Sacramento Rivers, which cool the grapes and allow them to hold their bright acidity.

Made in the style of a white wine, pressing the skins before fermentation. A small amount of color is extracted, the juice is fermented slowly at cold temperatures to preserve the bright fruit flavors and halted just before the wine is dry.
