Stressed Vines' 2019 Sonoma Coast Rosé is the perfect blend of Pinot Noir saigńee (95%) and Vermentino (5%) pressed juice from grapes grown in some of the best vineyards in the Sonoma Coast AVA. This is a dry, crisp and refreshing light-bodied wine that balances elegance and sophistication with refreshing acidity, and aromas of pink grapefruit, watermelon, fresh strawberry, blood orange, garrigue, and pear blossom.
We barrel fermented and barrel aged the pinot noir for 11 months, with just 10% new French oak for some added interest and mouthfeel. The vermentino is fermented and aged separately, treated more like a chardonnay in the cellar with lees stirring twice a month to add texture and mouthfeel. The two wines are blended together to create the perfect balance, fined and filtered to ensure clarity and color and then bottled.
