Smoked salmon and oysters.

In The Vineyard

Organically farmed on a 4 - trellised wire system with drip irrigation. The soil is sustainably managed with a rotation of different cover crops, vetches and organic mulching to stimulate healthy soil microbial activity. Strict pruning, green leaf management and suckering are essential for pests and disease control and optimal shading of grapes during the ripening of the fruit. The Rosé comes from rows of Merlot vineyards selected for good canopy growth and natural leaf shading to preserve the pristine fruit quality of the bunches. The Mourvedre component is from a young vineyard and has been added to give the Rosé a lingering spicey twist.

In The Cellar

To optimize the fruit extraction a 24 hour skin contact was implemented which also gave the wine its rich strawberry color.
