2018 ViNO Rose Sangiovese

Price: $12.00
Alpine strawberries, mountain-held and a smack of minerality. Open this wine. Then on to Italian melon, guava and passion fruit. That, coupled with the latter, fills the palate and the senses with absolute deliciousness. - Charles

“From 100% Sangiovese mostly from the Wahluke Slope, the 2018 ViNO Rose offers a knock-out bouquet of strawberry and Jolly Rancher to go with a juicy, balanced, delicious style on the palate. It’s a rocking rosé.”

“The medium gold/salmon colored 2017 ViNO Sangiovese Rosé offers a vibrant, straw- berry and cherry-scented bouquet as well as a rounded, supple, nicely textured style. With both racy acidity and a fleshy, textured, salty style on the palate, it’s a versatile rosé to drink over the coming 6-12 months.”

The vineyards we work with are farmed using the most up to date sustainable practices.

Fox Vineyard (36%): Located on the Wahluke Slope, this site is made up of two distinct
types of soils. The first being loamy, fine sand deposited by ancient glacial floods. The other half is made up of pre-ancient soils of caliche and basalt.
Art Den Hoed (22%): Located in lower Yakima Valley, this site is unique because it sits at 1300 ft. in elevation, making it one of the cooler vineyards in the area with excellent air drainage. 
Lewis Vineyard (15%), Windy Ridge (10%), Lewis & Clark Vineyard (6%),
Kiona Vineyard (7%)

The 2018 vintage was incredible! This outstanding vintage began mild followed by along and dry ripening season in the fall. This enabled us to hang the fruit to reach optimal ripeness without losing acidity or increasing sugars. The wines from 2018 are exceptional in many ways, from the great expression of the whites to the beautiful refinement and complexity of the reds. Enjoy!
