2015 Ehlers Estate Sylviane Rosé
from Peter

2015 Ehlers Estate Sylviane Rosé

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.

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 dry rosé, in the French tradition. 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

2015 was another great vintage in the Napa Valley. Another drought year that started out unseasonably warm, prompting the vines to get started historically early. The weather was beautifully sunny and mild all summer long, and most of us finished picking our vineyards weeks ahead of any vintage in memory. The crop was small and concentrated, the resulting wines are intense, concentrated, and complex.
