2017 Mauritson Rosé
Our 2017 Rockpile Rosé has a beautiful pink rose petal color. The nose is a beautiful combination of hibiscus blossom, red apple skin, and crushed wet rock. Vibrant and refreshing, this Rosé is focused on the palate. Flavors of sweet pomegranate give way to minerality and hints of peony. 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!
For the 2017 vintage, our Rosé was made by whole-cluster pressing 100% Rockpile Zinfandel. This practice produces lightly colored and delicate wines. The Rosé juice is fermented entirely in stainless steel and has not gone through malolactic fermentation, preserving the bright, fresh, natural malic acid in the grapes.
