This inaugural release of our 2016 Butternut Rosé has been an exciting time for us at BNA Wine Group. Our grapes 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.
2016 Harvest: After a rollercoaster 2015 vintage, we settled into an ideal 2016 vintage. Mellow, even weather led to normal to above average yields with tremendous quality. Wines from the 2016 vintage are rich with weight, round tannins and vibrant, dark fruit tones. It could possibly be one of the top vintages in the last two decades.
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.
