2014 MATCHBOOK ROSÉ OF TEMPRANILLO

Purchase online >

The color of sunset, this pretty Rosé is an estate-bottled blend of Tempranillo, Syrah, Malbec, Tannat and Graciano grown on our Matchbook Vineyard. The lovely aromas of peaches, strawberry and sassafras are followed up withfruit-sweet flavors of fresh peach, cherries and cream, finishing up with a compelling blend of lime, cherry cola and a hint of melon. This wonderfully pleasant wine is not complicated, but definitely not boring. Pair with spicy Thai rolls or poached salmon, or serve as a delightful aperitif.

GROWING SEASON

 

2014 was another perfect vintage out here in the Dunnigan Hills AVA. Cool nights and hot days maximized ripeness and intensity. No rain to spoil the grapes, and a long hang time to maximize flavor.

WINEMAKING NOTES

 

About 24 hours after crushing our tempranillo grapes, we “bleed” off a small percentage of
the juice before it has a chance to color up. This juice is then cold fermented in a temperature-controlled stainless steel tank. The fermentation, carried out at 50 degrees Fahrenheit, takes almost two months to complete, producing a wine with beautiful aromatics and a delicatecolor. We blended in a small amount of rosé from syrah, malbec, tannat and graciano for
added complexity.
