Paris Valley Road Rosé
WHY WE LOVE IT
- 2017 was the inaugural release of their Rosé. Made in a provance-style using only whole cluster pressings.
- This Rosé is a combination of the saignee juice from their Estate Chalk Knoll Vineyard in San Ardo.
- The light blush color is obtained by pulling the juice off the skins before color is extracted.
Varietal Composition: Syrah, Grenache, and Mourvèdre
Elaboration: Fermented and aged in stainless steel with no oak.
Tasting Notes: Tropical and cherry notes on the nose. Crisp on the pallet with a refreshing acidity that balances the bright, juicy cherry and ripe flavors on the lasting finish.
In 1995, the Stoller family of Sunridge Nurseries and Dana Merrill of Mesa Vineyard partnered to plant the Chalk Knoll Vineyard in San Ardo. Yes, Paris Valley Road is a very real place, The Chalk Knoll Vineyard is nestled against this stretch of dirt road that meanders along the scenic foothills of the southern Monterey Coast and located only 35 miles in from the Pacific Ocean. These vineyards are rich with history dating back to the 1800’s and complete with a turn of the 19th century adobe, still standing today. Their wines are those of intensity and unique mineral qualities, wines you can drink tonight and for years to come.
