2019 Vecino Vineyard Rosé of Pinot Noir
We’re back! After a one-year hiatus due to the fires of 2018, we were once again able to make our signature rosé from the Vecino Vineyard in Potter Valley. Those of you who were big fans previously will recognize the return of the pale salmon coloring, its fragrant floral aromatics and the pleasing yet subtle bite at the end.
+ The Vecino Vineyard is farmed with biodynamic practices and is certified organic.
+ Harvest for rosé was about a week later than usual on September 7 and 8.
+ The 2019 Reeve rosé did not go through malolactic fermentation.
+ The Pinot Noir is comprised of three different clones: 115, Pommard and clone 32. Clone 32 was brought over by Roederer in the 1970s for use in their sparkling winery in Anderson Valley. It contributes a pretty and high-toned aromatic sensibility.
+ Vecino is situated in the northern corner of Potter Valley near the origin of the Russian River.
+ The wine was fermented mostly in stainless steel with a small percentage of neutral oak barrels (2%).
