Pinot Noir Rosé
The grapes for our Pinot Noir Rosé are sourced from estate vineyards situated in the northernmost, cool-climate region of Monterey County. The moderate, maritime growing conditions and cool temperatures are ideal for temperamental Pinot Noir grapes, producing wines that are fresh and distinctive with intense varietal character and balanced acidity.
After gentle crushing, the wine is allowed eight hours of skin contact to extract aromatics, flavor and its exquisite, light pigment. The wine is then gently pressed, racked to stainless steel tanks and slowly fermented to dryness at a cool 50°F to preserve the varietal aromatics.
Our Ryder Estate Pinot Noir Rosé is blessed with rich, ripe strawberry and cherry aromas. The palate offers a compelling mix of luscious fruit flavors framed by crisp, refreshing acidity. Fragrant and delicious, our Pinot Noir Rosé can be enjoyed as an apéritif or as an accompaniment to a wide variety of foods.
