2013 Unti Vineyards Dry Creek Valley Rosé

SKU #1164519

Unti's 2013 Dry Creek Rose is a light Provencal-style blend of 80% Grenache and 20% Mourvedre from their estate Creekside Vineyard and Benchland Vineyard which was recently grafted with heritage clones sourced from Châteauneuf-du-Pape. Grapes are harvested early in the season with the purpose of producing a bracing rosé wine, rather than being made by draining off some more ripe juice from a vat of wine destined to be a red. To maintain purity and freshness, a very light skin contact is followed by fermentation in stainless steel until completely dry, and the finished wine never sees wood. At a moderate 13.8 abv, this crisp, delicious rosé sings of fresh strawberry and cherry, accented by delicate notes of lavendar. Brisk acidity and a kiss of minerals add focus the dry, cleansing finish. Perfect for warm weather entertaining, this will refresh the palate as an aperitif or betwee bites of your favorite picnic, grill, or al fresco dinner fare.

United States

- When people consider domestic wine, they normally think about the state of California. The fine viticultural Region within California, including the Napa Valley, Sonoma, Santa Cruz Mountains, Mendocino and Santa Barbara, are capable of growing grapes of world-class quality. But there's plenty of fabulous wine coming from other states, too. Oregon, Washington and New York are also causing eyebrows (and glassware) to be raised around the world.

Sub-Region:

California

- With the explosive growth that California's wine industry has seen the past several years, it's easy to view winemaking and grape growing in the Golden State as a recent phenomenon. And while it's true that California's viticultural history is brief compared to several European countries, this state's roots date back well over 200 years. Due to the enormous response to California wine within the United States and worldwide, there are thousands of excellent and diverse wines being produced within the state each year.

Specific Appellation:

Sonoma County

- Second in fame only to Napa, this "other" valley offers just about every climate and topography imaginable. From its cool and fog-enshrouded coastal regions on the far west, to the sprawling Alexander Valley on the boarder of Napa and the many little dips and peaks in between, Sonoma has been a vital wine-grape-growing region since the mid 1800s. Important sub-AVAs include Chalk Hill (known for chardonnay and sauvignon blanc), Dry Creek Valley (where zin is king) Knights Valley (largely cabernet land), Russian River Valley and Sonoma Coast (both celebrated pinot and chardonnay zones).
