Quivira Rose 2008

Quivira, Dry Creek Valley Wine Creek Ranch, Grenache, Rose 2008

In the nose the fruit is ever so fresh, featuring citrus and strawberries. In the mouth there’s plenty of acidity, a little phenolic grip and a sense of the alcohol in the background. The grapes were grown biodynamically and 12% of the blend is Mourvedre. Fermentation was in stainless and the wine aged for 6 months on the lees. Proprietors Pete & Terri Kight. Winemaker Steven Canter. Estate grown, produced and bottled in Healdsburg 13.6% $12.99 at Bottle Barn Quivira
