Sidebar Cellars, 2016 Sidebar Cellars Rosé

"Made entirely from Syrah grown on two vineyard sites, then fermented and aged in stainless steel, this wine is light pink-orange in color and begins with a robust flavor of hazelnut and savory lemon peel. Dry and crisp, it remains lighthearted in the glass, finishing with a tease of grapefruit. —V.B."

100% Syrah from Russian River Valley, Sonoma County

62% Campbell McKinney Vineyard, 38% De La Montanya Vineyards

SOIL & VINES Campbell-McKinney Vineyard was planted in 1991 & 1993 with Durrell selection Syrah on 3309 rootstock on sandy and gravelly loam.

2016 began with another very early bloom, leading to a very early harvest in Sonoma County; our first fruit arrived August 5. During maturation, summer temperatures were warm and steady, with fewer heat spikes than 2015. Three weeks of cool weather in August and September relaxed the pace of harvest, allowing for methodical picking decisions and perfectly developed fruit. Yields were relatively average – down from 2014 and up from 2015.

Native yeast, non-malo in stainless steel barrels. Aged Sur lies aged in stainless steel barrels for three months.
