2019 Kelleher Rosé of Pinot Noir
Green Valley of Russian River Valley
Elegant, expressive and subtle, our 2019 Rosé of Pinot Noir has bright acidity and offers distinct aromas of alpine strawberry and rose petal. Sourced from the Don Miguel Vineyard in the Russian River, this Rosé is whole cluster pressed, fermented with native yeast, and aged on the lees for 5 month in stainless steel and neutral oak.
An ideal summertime wine, this Rosé pairs beautifully with a wide variety of cuisine. We especially enjoy it around the barbeque and for sipping next to the pool. It is named in honor of our parents, Don and Donna Kelleher, whom are nearing their 60th wedding anniversary.
Russian River Valley
The grapes are whole cluster pressed and settled for two days. The juice is then racked off the lees and warmed to 60 degrees to encourage native fermentation. When fermentation begins, the fermenting juice is barreled down into stainless steel and oak barrels. The wine is aged on the lees that is stirred twice a month for five months, then bottled.
