The 2019 Matthews Rosé was crafted from a couple of vineyards across two separate Washington State AVAs in the Columbia Valley and Walla Walla Valley. Farmed using sustainable practices, the vines were hand-harvested early in the mornings between September 27th and October 1st. Upon arriving in the winery, each cluster was destemmed and macerated for 14-24 hours; after being drained and pressed, the juice then settled for 48 hours. Using only free-run wine, it was then moved to stainless steel tanks for 9 months, cold stabilized and sterile filtered. Evaluated over 40 times by our winemaking team, only 835 cases were bottled.
