2018 Rosé of Grenache


  • Tasting Notes

    Grenache is known for making wonderful Rosé of class and style. The first thing you notice about the Bricoleur Vineyards Rosé is its beautiful lightly-hued rose petal color. The wine has a supple texture and crisp minerality. There are hints of white peach, strawberry, and light spices on the nose. On the palate, the wine has a savory fullness of light red fruits. The flavorful acidity and freshness it brings makes the wine extra yummy. It is produced from 100% Fountain Grove District appellation Grenache grapes.

  • Winemaking Notes

    This vintage of Rosé is made from Kick Ranch Grenache, which is sustainably farmed in the Fountaingrove District appellation. The hand-picked fruit was carefully selected and night-harvested at the exact moment when the fruit reached the right maturity and acid levels to craft an elegant, delicate style of Rosé. The grapes were delivered to Punchdown Cellars on the morning of September 18, 2018.

    The grapes were whole cluster pressed until the perfect color was achieved. The resulting Grenache juice then settled for two days in a stainless tank and went through a three-week cool fermentation process. After fermentation, the juice was transferred to 75-gallon stainless barrels and left to age sur lie in the barrels for six months. The Rosé was filtered and bottled on February 20, 2019.
