Winemaker Bruce Mcguire uses Pinot Noir grapes from Burning Creek Ranch for the Sta. Rita Hills Rosé. One of California’s smaller AVAs, Sta. Rita Hills, is located in the corridor between the Purisima Hills and Santa Rosa Hills.
Sustainability in Practice Certified Wine
Burning Creek Ranch produces bright fruit with fully-developed flavors. These vines are grown across a blend of river deposited soils from the Santa Ynez River. The delicate Pinot Noir grapes benefit from morning fog and consistent offshore breeze. This wine retains its bright high-tones as it is fermented in stainless steel.
Winemaker Comments: The composition of this year's Rosé of Pinot Noir is 51% clone 667, 40% clone 23, and 9% clone 113. The fruit is de-stemmed and cold-soaked on the skins resulting in vivid color and succulent fruit reminiscent of ripe Bing cherries.
Tasting Notes: The 2020 Sta. Rita Hills Rose of Pinot Noir is a lush cranberry color. Aromas of strawberry, rose and rhubarb jump out of the glass. The wine’s bright color is contrasted by delicate flavors of watermelon, subtle cranberry, and hibiscus. Light-bodied with nice acidity, drink alongside Greek fare, anything with pesto, or sauteed asparagus.
