2018 Texas Dry Rose
2018 Texas Dry Rose

Our 2018 Texas Dry Rosé is Rhône-style blend. Consisting predominately of Cinsault it is followed by Mourvèdre, and Carignon. In keeping with the tradition of the 2017 blend, a portion of this blend is sourced from our newest block of Mourvèdre at the estate vineyard. We utilized both the saignee method and direct press method in creating this wine. No effort was spared and on two harvests our winemaking team was pulling juice from beautiful bins of Carignon into the wee hours of the morning. Separating the must from the skins not even a full hour after harvest, allowed for the least bit of extraction and a lighter bodied, more mineral driven component to this wine.
