2018 Acquiesce Grenache Rose
This Provençal style rosé has a super lush nose and aromas of watermelon, strawberry and lime. Mineral and medium-full body with a rounded, fleshy texture, this wine pairs well with any food but try it with Mediterranean cuisine or Spanish tapas for a special treat … or just enjoy it outside on a sunny day!
Our grapes were harvested from our estate vineyard located in the Mokelumne River AVA of the Lodi Appellation. Our Grenache grape clones come from both the famous French Château de Beaucastel Winery in the Châteauneuf-du-Pape region and from the renowned Alban Grenache clone. The cool nighttime breezes from the Mokelumne River nearby gives the grapes ripe, fruity flavors with excellent balance.
Our Grenache grapes were hand-picked and the majority of the grapes were whole cluster pressed, with the remainder crushed and cold-soaked before pressing. The grapes were harvested in the early morning to keep acidity at its highest, providing the vibrancy in the wine. The juice is then cool fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks to highlight the pure Lodi fruit expressions.
