2016Rosé

Unavailable

The 2016 Matthews Rose’ was crafted exclusively from a single vineyard site in Washington State, located south of the Royal Slope in the Columbia Valley. Farmed using sustainable practices, the vines were hand-harvested early in the mornings of late summer. Upon arriving in the winery, each cluster was hand-sorted and macerated for 18-20 hours in order to achieve full color extraction before pressing. Using only free-run wine, it was then moved to 100% stainless steel tanks for fermentation. Evaluated over 40 individual times by our winemaking team, only 125 cases were produced.

Tasting Notes

Pale, with an extremely fresh nose of lime zest, pink grapefruit, cantaloupe and wet stone. After a few minutes it shows aromas of light strawberry syrup, lavender flower and white pear. This wine has a perfect balance between ripe stone fruit, melon and citrus. Perfect for the summer season and keep it cold!
