Dry Rosé
Vin Gris, 2004

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

Bottled barely in time for this offering, we are thrilled with the reception of our pink wines over the past few years. I already like this at least as much as our 2003 version which has just hit its stride. The 2004 has the same perfumes as the 2003, and a similar mouth-watering acidity, verve and clarity that make this a wine of few peers. I have had a number of calls from other winemakers asking how we make this wine. We also made a Cabernet Sauvignon Vin Gris which will be released this summer.

    This pale wine is indeed dry. It’s also crisply tart in acids, making for a clean, brisk mouthfeel. Flavorwise, it’s subtle, suggesting a delicate, raspberry-infused tea, with a touch of rose petal and cinnamon. Steve Heimhoff
