2019 Martin Ray Estate Rosé of Pinot Noir
While always fresh and food friendly, we strive to make a Rosé that is also complex, intended to be enjoyed all year. Lean and pure of fruit with brilliant high tones that highlight the expressive varietal.
Martin Ray Estate
Located on the Laguna Ridge in the heart of the Russian River Valley, all planted to goldridge soil. Made entirely from Clone 115, we culled a few tons from our favorite block early in the season to produce our Estate Rosé.
100% Pinot Noir
Starting with rain during bloom, 2019 transitioned into a steady, slow to warm spring. Temperate throughout the summer, offering only a couple intermittent heat spikes. Average yields and incredible quality with harvest beginning in early August.
Harvested at low brix. 100% free run with native yeast fermentation. Stainless steel.
Lively aromas of wild strawberries with fresh lime zest and spearmint lead to a surprisingly rounded, yet lively palate of candied citrus, riper strawberries, and a touch of white peach on the finish.
