Dry Rosé
Vin Gris, 1998

During the busy harvest season, we often think about how nice it is to relax and enjoy a bottle of Vin Gris. It was made by ‘bleeding off’ a small amount of juice from our red grapes before fermentation. We like to think of it as the blood of our grapes, the sweat of our brow, and tears of joy.

Winemaker's Notes

We doubled our production of this dry rosé to two barrels. It is slightly crisper and has a little more pink grapefruit character than the previous vintage. This is not ‘white Zinfandel’ (unripe & sweet). It has much more in common with Bandol Rosé. Seafood dishes with garlic and /or tomato cry out for this wine. So does a thirsty mouth.
