Sofia Rosé is a wine of unparalleled beauty.
From its shapely, stylized bottle to its fruity essence, this is a wine like no other. When served chilled, its refreshing style makes a delicious partner to light summer fare and savory hors d’oeuvres.
In creating Sofia Rosé, the grapes are harvested at a lower Brix to ensure the wineremains light in character, and pairs well with food. To achieve our signature elegantsalmon pink hue, the grapes are held in the press for a short period of time until thejuice has just the right amount of pigment. Each varietal offers its own unique color to the overall blend. To preserve the aromatic intensity, the wine is fermented at a cool temperature in stainless steel fermenters.
The fruit for our Sofia Rosé is grown in Monterey County, an appellation known for its cool climate and diurnal temperature pattern, where warm daytime temperatures may drop nearly 50 degrees in the evening. This condition extends the growing season and helps the grapes to ripen slowly.
2021 began erratically with heat spikes and cold, windy weather, leading to a lighter crop, overall. Once fruit set, weather stabilized to steady mild to warm weather, providing perfect conditions for ripening and the development of phenolic concentration and flavor. The 2021 Sofia Rosé celebrates this vintage with bright, fresh fruit flavors and outstanding balance between ripeness and crisp natural acidity. Aromatic notes of fresh cherry, minerals, and white flowers tantalize the nose. The palate is lively with flavors of pomegranate and fresh cherry, with minerality continuing through the finish.
