Margerum Wine Company, 2016 Margerum 'Riviera' Rosé

"Light and almost effervescent in the glass, this popular Grenache-based pink from Doug Margerum offers yeasty, Champagne-like aromas, soft lemon-peel scents and wet slate minerality. The palate’s tingling acidity delivers chalky lime and cotton candy flavors, bound together with compelling tension. Editors’ Choice. —M.K."

"Doug always makes a light-colored rosé and his 2016 Riviera Rosé gives up pretty, classy notes of strawberries, citrus blossom and hints of salty minerality. Clean, impeccably balanced and classically dry on the palate, it's a terrific rose that's going to shine over the coming summer months."

The Grenache is picked specifically for rosé production. Grapes are crushed and immediately pressed to stainless tank for a long cold fermentation.
Saignée is a winemaking process where winemakers bleed off a portion of slightly pink juice from a red must right after crush. They then filter and bottled early to capture brightness and vibrancy. This is a refreshing dry spring and summer rosé for picnics and other activities.

The wine is blended with various lots of Counoise, Cinsaut, and other Grenache vineyards that were saignéed.
The wine is aged 98% Stainless Steel and 2% Barrel Fermented.
