Linden Ridge Vineyard
On the nose this Grenache Rosé is delicate, with floral notes of rose and lilac, and aromas of strawberry and cherries. On the mouth it’s vibrant, with grapefruit, red fruit and lemonade flavors. The finish is bright and refreshing, adding to the desire for another sip.
This Grenache comes from a vineyard called Linden Ranch and it’s farmed by Round Valley Ranches. It is located in Linden and is on situated along a hillside and has a mostly clay soil. The vineyard is a quadrilateral cordon pruned, meaning it has 4 arms coming off the trunk of the vine trained on to a wire. This helps create balanced sun exposure, creating a longer hang time on the vine, and more optimal flavors. This is a certified sustainable vineyard.
These grapes were hand picked in the morning and then whole cluster pressed. The juice had a cold soak and then was inoculated and had a cold and long fermentation. Once fermentation was complete, the wine was racked and held cold until an early bottling in December to maintain freshness and liveliness.
