The 2015 Brut Rosé is 100% Mission Ranch Swan clone Pinot Noir. Made with guidance with our friend, colleague, and sparkling wine consultant Craig Roemer; hand harvested grapes were carefully pressed and racked to used French oak barrels where the wine underwent fermentation and 9 months barrel aging. Bottled in late Summer 2016 the wine underwent seven years of tirage (aging on the lees in bottle) before being disgorged in June 2023. Bottled with 6 grams/L dosage this wine is a light onion skin color, has very fine bubbles and has aromas of brioche and bruised red apple that follows through on the palate with red berry and bright acidity. 62 cases produced, 12.8% alcohol.
