Waits-Mast 2020 Rose of Pinot Noir, Mendocino County
The new 2020 Rosé of Pinot Noir is our second direct-press rosé, made with Pinot Noir sourced from the same Anderson Valley vineyard as our Pinot Noir Blanc. The skins and the juice were left in contact to macerate for two hours to deliver its coral hue and refreshing fruit flavors. The wine was fermented and aged in stainless steel for six months. 90 cases produced
Winemaker's tasting notes:A vibrant medium salmon-pink and coral color in the glass, the bouquet is stuffed with alpine strawberry and sweet mint. On the palate, strawberry shortcake and pomegranate are underpinned with fresh-cut herbs and bright acidity. Mouth-filling yet zippy, this wine is delicious on its own or with light dishes like fresh summer rolls with mint and prawns.
