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. Drink now.
