Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
We made this bone-dry rosé by whole-cluster pressing Sangiovese grapes and pulling ~15% “saigne” from red Sangiovese fermenters shortly after de-stemming. Once fermentation was complete, we added a touch of Graciano from a red batch late in its fermentation to add color and spice. This signature Tumbleweed rosé is marked by bright red fruit, a food-friendly crispness and a silky finish.
Vineyard Notes
95% Sangiovese from Fort Bowie Vineyard. Cochise County, AZ. 3,900 ft. elevation. Harvested on Sept. 26th - 5% Graciano from Cimarron Vineyard. Cochise County, AZ. 4,300 ft. elevation. Harvested on Sept. 3rd - Sugar at harvest: 22.2 Brix
Production Notes
Pressed whole-cluster. An additional ~15% volume was pulled from red Sangiovese fermenters shortly after destemming (saigné). Juice then settled 48 hours, racked, and inoculated with specially selected yeasts (VIN 13). Graciano was pulled from a red batch late in fermentation. Fermented in stainless steel at 55 F for 20 days. Malolactic fermentation inhibited.
