The grapes from our 2018 Butternut Rose are sourced from two vineyards in the central coast, mostly Paso Robles. Two different vineyards were harvested a few days apart, crushed a pressed immediately to get that crisp clean look and taste we have today.
2018 Harvest: The 2018 growing season was a winemaker's dream. The mild spring, steady average temperatures throughout the summer, and no rain in the fall, provided the perfect environment for the vines, which produced high quantity and quality grapes. 2018 provided the perfect ripening conditions and will go down as one of the best wine growing years on the books.
TASTING NOTES: Sweet scents of watermelon, citrus and pale florals fill the air. On the palate, an array of strawberry and grapefruit entwine to deliver a crisp, acidic finish.
