Our Dry Rosé features three Portuguese varietals, with Touriga Nacional being dominant then Tinto Cão and Souzão. These varietals are uncommon in Washington, and even more uncommon as a Rosé, which makes our Dry Rose truly one-of-a-kind. The grapes were hand-picked and pressed with minimal skin contact, and then fermented cool in stainless steel. This resulted in a light-bodied, fresh and crisp tasting rosé with notes of strawberry, minerals, and grapefruit.
