2023 Pinot Noir Rosé Handley Estate Vineyard, Anderson Valley

Pinot Noir Rosé
Handley Estate Vineyard, Anderson Valley


Made with organically farmed grapes from our Handley block 5A Pinot Noir, Wadenswil 2A clone planted in 1990.This block has a divided double lyre and wide rows. It was designed for large yields and maintaining acidity for a sparkling wine program. The late cold vintage provided us with ripe fruit character and crisp natural acidity. The fruit was picked cold and pressed whole cluster. Fermentation began in tank and racked in a mix of stainless steel to preserve fruit and neutral barrels to allow stirring on the lees and create roundness on the palate. The wine was sterile filtered, malolactic fermentation was avoided to preserve fresh fruit flavors, and bottled with a slight effervescence. Refreshing with restrained alcohol but plenty of fruit focused by a crisp finish. Exuding essences of narcissus, fresh strawberries and cream, and cucumbers. Full on the palate with lively mouth-watering acidity, showing flavors of watermelon, strawberries, lime, and wet stone.
