Club Members, Log-in for special pricing.
In the French marketplace, the word(s)/term en primeur is used to describe the opening of "a season". Such "a season" being the first strawberries or the first peaches of the new year to hit the market. And, as "a season" opens it is a time to rejoice and celebrate the flavors. At Mercy there is a similar approach to the Rosé bottling. And, like any season (short or long), we celebrate the warm summer months by producing a finite amount of delicious, dry rose-colored wine.
A classic vin gris style wine, this dry Rosé hails from pinot noir (pommard clone) grapes sourced at Cedar Lane Vineyard. At crush, grapes were whole-cluster pressed and transferred to directly to stainless steel mueller kegs where it was inoculated following 24-hours of settling. Fermented dry, and taken off its lees at dryness, the wine aged in stainless steel until it was bottled.
Salmon-hued, the 2015 bottling exudes aromas of strawberry, rhubarb, rose petal and minerals.
