2018 Sunset Rose
45% Merlot, 42% Cabernet Franc, 13% Cabernet Sauvignon
Corry's Notes - Typically, the Sunset Rose is made mostly of Chambourcin, but for the 2018 vintage I decided to do a French-style rosé (closer to our previous vintages of Cab Franc Rose) as these grapes were picked at the perfect time for rose. Merlot gives a beautiful pink hue, while Cabernet Franc offers more ripe fruit flavors. The wine is a blend of both direct press and saignée winemaking techniques. A cool ferment and short aging in stainless steel keeps the wine fresh and delicate.
