2020 Starmont Rose of Pinot Noir Carneros
For the 2020 vintage, we sourced fruit from both our Stanly Ranch Estate Vineyard and the Lee Vineyard in Carneros. We harvested this Pinot Noir from August 20th through 25th, and the grapes were whole cluster direct to press and fermented in stainless steel tanks. Fermentation happened slowly at a cool 52°F with no malolactic fermentation. Enjoy this wine immediately upon release and for the next 2 to 3 years from vintage.
This is a light, fresh style Rosé highlighting minimal skin contact with the Pinot Noir grapes, and showcasing primary aromatics and bright acidity. Naturally low in alcohol, we retain fresh fruit characteristics by picking the grapes at optimal ripeness for Rosé. Beautiful pale salmon color; bright, fresh aromas and flavors of strawberry and watermelon with delightful acidity that keeps you coming back for more.
