As with every vintage, we gather at daybreak a loyal crew of employees, friends and family and ascended upon Destin Vineyard to harvest our bounty of Syrah grapes. Selected rows are farmed specifically for our Rosé to ensure a balance of acidity, aromatics and color. Perfect whole clusters are gently pressed to beautiful pale pink hue.
A long, very cold fermentation ensures the capture of the most delicate aromatics. The initial blast fills the nose with tart red fruit, cherries, strawberries and raspberries, layered underneath are hints of stone fruits, melons and fine notes of citrus. This complex bouquet leads to a palate of sprightly acidity and a salty minerality, followed by a lovely array of orange zest and white cherry. The lengthy finish lets you savor the wine and the moment.

Food Pairing Notes
Enjoy this wine with a grilled peach salad with burrata or melon and prosciutto. It will also be the perfect match for a Dungeness crab sandwich or your favorite salmon dish.
“Rosé always ushers in springtime in the most perfect way. The parallel to nature
coming out to shine and the excitement of the new release from a harvest that took
place less than a half year in the past is just so exciting. Everything is new again. I really
enjoy working with the old vine Destin Syrah each year in creating this very enjoyable
Rosé. Open your mind, and heart, and let the interpretation begin!” - Winemaker, Kirk Venge
