2015 Mauritson Rosé
100% Cabernet Franc
100% Stainless steel fermented and aged
The 2015 Rockpile Rosé has a beautiful pale pink copper color. The nose is a bouquet of wild strawberries, spring acacia blossom and crushed wet stones. Vibrant and refreshing, this Rosé is focused on the palate. Flavors of high-toned red fruit give way to minerality and hints of white peach. The wine is soft and inviting on the front palate, with a crisp and pure finish. Please enjoy this wine over the course of the next 12-18 months with lighter fare or on the porch with friends on a hot summer day!
In 2015, 100% of our Rosé was made by whole-cluster pressing Rockpile Cabernet Franc. This practice produces lightly colored and delicate wines. The Rosé juice is fermented 100% in stainless steel and this wine has not gone through malolactic fermentation, preserving the bright, fresh, natural malic acid in the grapes
