Region: Central Coast
Grape: Pinot Noir
This vintage of Rose comes from a newly planted and producing vineyard, Casa Contenta, located just west of the Topotero & Bassi Vineyard, in Avila Beach, within the SLO Coast AVA.
The Pinot Noir was picked for natural acidity and foot tread to soak on the skins for 4 hours before being whole bunch pressed. The juice was settled overnight then barrel down to old french oak to ferment with native yeast & bacteria. The wine aged on lees for 7 months, bottled unfined and unfiltered, with minimal sulfur used.
Notes of alpine strawberries, ocean mist, and orange peels.
