2019 Martin Ray Rosé of Pinot Noir, Sonoma Coast
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, Richioli, Dutton Ranch
Coming from a small percentage of nearly all of our Sonoma Coast vineyards. Each picked at its ideal ripeness to maximize the flavors of our Pinot Noir, the subsequent Rosé also takes on the complex bouquet and palate.
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.
Fresh macerated wild strawberries with bright citrus notes and racy, vibrant acidity. A touch of pink grapefruit and quince lingers throughout with a rich, creamy finish.
