Love You Bunches Rosé
Santa Barbara County, CA
Fresh, firm strawberry with a twist of citrus - perhaps ruby red grapefruit - accompanied with crunchy pomegranate. So dry and crisp, light and 100% crushable.
The pun "Love You Bunches" stems from the winemakers utilization of carbonic fermentation. Carbonic fermentation simply means to ferment in a sealed tank filled with carbon dioxide rather than oxygen. They do not de-stem or crush the fruit, rather they "lovingly and gently" hand pick each cluster. They delicately pour each bunch into shallow carbonic tanks where still, grapes aren't crushed from above. Each bunch gets plenty of love! By preventing oxidation and forcing yeast to penetrate through the grapes' pores and ferment whole - a light bodied, bright wine is created.
