ABOUT
TASTING NOTES
The 2020 vintage of our Estate Vineyard rosé of Pinot Noir highlights Artesa's commitment to always produce high quality wines with meticulous attention to detail. This rosé is fermented to dryness, meaning there is no residual sugar in the wine, allowing it to showcase what Pinot Noir is famous for - vibrant fruit aromatics and bright acidity. The nose opens with delicate aromas of fresh raspberry, citrus blossom, and bing cherries. Bright acidity highlights hints of juicy strawberry and pomegranate on the palate, with a lingering finish that draws you back for another sip.

WINEMAKING NOTES
Varietal Composition: 100% Pinot Noir
Technical Data: ALC: 12.8%; TA: 7.1 g/L; pH: 3.24
Cooperage: 100% Stainless Steel Tanks

The grapes for this wine were hand harvested at night and brought to the winery in the early morning hours to ensure they are kept cool to preserve the quality of the fruit. They were then immediately loaded into our press for a gentle pressing cycle with minimal rotations, similar to the cycle we use for our sparkling wines. These limited rotations and gentle pressing action, extracts very little color from red grapes, and minimizes the harsh tannins found in the seeds and skins, as well as limiting the amount of astringency in the finished wine. After pressing, the juice was sent directly to stainless steel tanks, where it was fermented at a very cool temperature, which allows for maximum varietal expression in the finished wine. Winemaker, Ana Diogo-Draper selected strains of yeast
specifically to highlight Pinot Noirs intense aromatics and velvety mouthfeel. Fermenting in different lots allows the winemaking team to select the best only the best lots to make into this 100% whole cluster pressed rosé, exclusively from our Estate Vineyard.
