Two Squared Rosé 2021
For the debut vintage of our Rosé, our winemakers blended fruit from vineyards in Napa Valley's sub-appellations of Atlas Peak, Spring Mountain District, Oak Knoll District, Mount Veeder, Yountville and St. Helena to create a Rose that exudes a soft style of the essence of Napa Valley.
About this Wine
On the nose: Aromas of cantaloupe and citrus peel are accented by notes of lavender and green peppercorn.
On the palate: Flavors of melon and pomegranate are complemented by bay leaf and a smooth, balanced acidity with a savory saline finish.
Fermentation: 80% stainless steel, 20% neutral oak
A dry winter and generally cool growing year, punctuated by a handful of moderate heat events, set the stage for our 2021 growing year. Early on, we knew we were preparing for a vintage to remember. A lack of rain limited yields and canopy vigor but provoked unusually early flavor development. The summer brought slow and steady flavor and color development, along with great retention of acidity, before a spike in temperatures drove ripening. Our resulting Rosé is fresh, complex and nicely concentrated.
