2018 Ferdinand California Rosé (375ml Cans)

SKU #1408122

Winemaker's Notes: "This year I decided to seek out a dedicated vineyard to make the best possible Rosé. I was able to source this Carignan from a head-trained block planted in the 1950’s on the banks of the Mokelumne River in Lodi. The vineyard is owned and farmed by the 4th generation of the Manassero family. Old-school as they come, Leonard Manassero grew up farming the vineyard with his father and grandfather and his son is there to help him today. In Spain, Carignan is known as Cariñena or Mazuelo - to growers like the Manasseros in Lodi - as Kerrigan. Winemaking: The fruit was hand picked on September 9th. The large, bush vine canopies shade the fruit and proximity to the delta keep things cool and fresh. Picked around 20 brix the wine is just 11.8% alcohol. I whole cluster pressed the grapes using a gentle champagne press cycle and settled the juice overnight before fermenting the wine in stainless. There was a light filtration before bottling / canning to make sure the wine looks great in bottle / glass. The pretty, light coppery-pink color is 100% unmanipulated."
