Dragoon Mountain Vineyard
TA: 6.1 g/L
Aged 6+ months in stainless steel. This wine saw only minimal cold-stabilization, did NOT undergo heat stabilization and is filtered, but un-fined.
We made this bone-dry rosé by whole-cluster pressing Barbera grapes and cold-fermenting the clean, lightly colored juice. This signature Tumbleweed rosé is marked by bright red fruit, a food-friendly crispness and a silky finish.
100% Barbera from Dragoon Mountain Vineyard. Cochise County, AZ. 4,300 ft. elevation. Harvested on Aug. 26th - Sugar at harvest: 23.1 Brix.
Pressed whole-cluster. Juice then settled 48 hours, racked, and inoculated with specially selected yeasts (Rhone2056). Fermented in stainless steel at 55 F for 26 days. Malolactic fermentation inhibited.
