2012 Ehlers Estate Sylviane Rose

2012 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 bristling 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 bristling acidity, low alcohol and a lingering lemon-berry finish. Not red, not white, but a classic old-world rosé, ready for summertime.

Vineyard Notes:

2012 was a great vintage in the Napa Valley. Early spring rains gave us just the water we needed to get the vines growing, then the warm weather set right on cue. All summer long we enjoyed warm days, and cool nights that were so beautiful it was almost too good to be true! A long mellow season with enough heat to polish the grapes and develop the flavors, and no extreme weather events to compromise the valley-wide excellence. Every grape on the estate was picked at optimum ripeness.
