2019 Knudsen Vineyard Brut Rosé
We often find that Knudsen Sparkling wines are round and fruit-driven, with notes of brioche. We were pleasantly surprised when we found leaner, mineral notes in this vintage of Brut Rosé. This is one of our winemaker Nate Klostermann's favorite wines because of its chewy texture and rosey brightness.
Chilled, whole clusters are pressed and juice is settled for 3-5 days and later racked into barrel for fermentation lasting 4 weeks. Soaked on skins for 48 hrs.
