Birichino "Vin Gris" Rosé 2020
A fruity blend of Carignan, Mourvédre and Grenache. Many of these vines are coming from famous vineyards over 100 years old! Aromas of stone fruits, hibiscus, and watermelon dominate the perfume, with the ever delightful Cinsault contributing the violet top note, and a small quantity of particularly fresh and vivid Vermentino from the Napa side of Carneros adding some zest. Entirely the product of a very gentle direct press in 2020, the Vin Gris is fermented to dryness in one long, sequential fermentation in stainless.
