2016 Starmont Rose
100% Pinot Noir
Our Starmont Rosé of Pinot Noir has a hue typical of Pinot Rose, a lovely salmon color, with aromas of rose water, citrus and lilac enhancing the pleasant and focused entry of this mouthwatering wine. The clean acidity is well balanced by the fresh flavors of strawberry, blood orange and watermelon notes. Ending with good length and a long, clean finish. This wine is mean to be enjoyed young and fresh but will evolve nicely for 2-3 years from vintage
The fruit for this Carneros Rosé is sourced from our estate vineyard the Stanly Ranch, as well as the Brown Ranch and the Lee Vineyard.
This Rosé wine is made with a mix of techniques, including whole cluster pressing, cold soak with grape skin contact and the Saignee style. Combining these lots fermented in stainless steel tanks for fermentation allows a deep and complex flavor to develop.
