2018 Davis Family 'Rosé De Noir' Sparkling Rosé
Russian River Valley, California
2018 Rose de Noir is the sixth vintage of this limited production sparkling wine. It is crafted from 100% Dutton Ranch Pinot Noir. There are very few ideal vineyard sites on the planet for producing sparkling wine, but after years of tenacity, Guy found the perfect spot, worthy of the Davis Family Vineyards label. After a long relationship working with the Dutton Family, Guy was able to secure a block of Pinot Noir that comes from an exceptionally cool spot on this already cool vineyard site. This is ideal for sparkling wine - the fruit has longer hang time, allowing for more "flavor days," when the fruit continues to develop in complexity without the sugar levels increasing too rapidly.
Fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks. Typically aged around 36 months on the lees.
Bright orange-pink. Juicy tangerine and raspberry scents, along with subtle mineral, floral and toasty lees flourishes. In a bright, lively style, showing good clarity and nervy cut to chewy red berry and citrus pith flavors. Finishes silky and long, with lingering florality and building spiciness.
