Wonderland Ranch - Rosé (100% Syrah) / 1000mL
The Wonderland Ranch Project (Sonoma, California)
Aromas and flavours strawberry, cranberry, & orange blossom. Vintage: A warm winter with below-average rainfall and a cool start to spring kept the vines dormant late into March. Spring remained cool and brought moderate amounts of rain all the way to Memorial Day, keeping shoot growth fairly slow until early June. Mild summer weather contributed to slow fruit development until warmer August temperatures prevailed, pushing grapes to maturity quickly. Harvest began on August 2nd with favorable, temperate weather throughout the picking season. Cellar: 100% whole cluster press after foot treading and 2-hours of skin contact. Malolactic fermentation was arrested. Fermented and aged in stainless steel for 4 months prior to bottling unfined.
