2013 Ehlers Estate Sylviane Rose

2013 Ehlers Estate Sylviane Rose

Aromas of watermelon, raspberry and cotton candy mingle with orange sorbet and fresh red cherries. On the palate, the wine is crisp and dry with a sparkling acidity, low alcohol and a lingering lemon-berry finish. Not red, not white, but a classic old-world rosé, ready for summertime.

Tasting Notes:

In the top corner of block 2-H, out in front of the winery, we’ve identified a few rows of early ripening Cabernet Franc with extremely bright, red-fruit flavors. From these grapes, using a gentle Champagne pressing program, we make a few barrels of bone-dry rosé, in the French tradition, to pour and sell here at the property. We call this elegant pink wine Sylviane in honor of our elegant founder, Madame Sylviane Leducq. Aromas of watermelon, raspberry and cotton candy mingle with orange sorbet and fresh red cherries. On the palate, the wine is crisp and dry with a sparkling acidity, low alcohol and a lingering lemon-berry finish. Not red, not white, but a classic old-world rosé, ready for summertime.

Vineyard Notes:

2013 was another great vintage in the Napa Valley. A warm, dry spring got the vines off to an exceptionally early start. No frost, no rain, no unusual heat waves, just endless days of California sunshine with classically warm afternoons and those cool nights that the grapevines adore. Budbreak was early, veraison was early, and the tempo continued right up until harvest. Great quality across the board, healthy fermentations, rich, complex, full bodied wines all across the Napa Valley.
