Hitching Post, Central Coast Pinks Dry Rosé 2017
With purposeful intention, this 2017 "Pinks" is made with free run juice from Pinot Noir of Rio Vista and Kick On vineyards, and pressed juice of Valdiguie from the French Camp Vineyards near Shandon. The Pinot portion adds a bit of richness and roundness to this wine, without taking away from the refreshing light nature. We enjoy the Valdiguie here for its lively crisp and refreshing strawberry scented aspect. Together these grapes create a young, dry rose that drinks well before dinner, makes a wonderful "wake up call" for the palate, and can match lighter foods very well.This can be enjoyed very young for it freshness, and will gain richness and complexity over the next year. We think this is an impeccable rose that gives joy in a light and refreshing manner, and can be enjoyed in any season, and in any setting. This Pinks exemplifies our attitude that we take our fun seriously. Blend: 80% Valdiguie, 20% Pinot Noir
