A Rosé that's not a rosé. A rosé is made in a method called Saignée. This is a French term meaning literally "to bleed"; saignée refers to the process of "bleeding", or pulling juice from a tank of red must (grape juice) that is just beginning fermentation. The goal is two-fold. First, the lightly-colored juice that is bled out of the tank produces a rosé. Second, the must remaining in the tank has a higher proportion of grape skins to juice; the resulting wine will be richer and more concentrated.

This wine is a fully fermented wine from Zinfandel, not bled or altered in any way. The skins are left for just a short amount of time, resulting in a gorgeous pink hue. The expressive nose is full of floral notes and delicate fruit.  There are bright crisp acids that blend with minerality on the mid-palate, offering flavors of subtle cherry, rose petals, other foral notes, with hints of apricot. The refreshing finish lingers and cleanses with floral fruit. This is a wine you can enjoy with a meal, but is spectacular on its own.

We're still experimenting with pairings. Stay tuned. But try this wine. It's worthy of Halleck Vineyard.
