The 2020 Decoy Rosé offers fresh and delectable fruit on the palate. This wine delivers aromas and flavors of dried earth, spice, and dried strawberries. Pair it with fresh salmon and avocado sushi rolls.
Decoy Rosé was inspired by the great Rosés of Provence. Unlike many Rosés, which are made as a byproduct of bleeding off juice from red wine fermentation, the grapes for this wine were specifically harvested at lower Brix to make a dry Rosé. To further preserve the wine’s beautiful aromatics, pure fruit flavors and crisp refreshing mouthfeel, it was fermented entirely in stainless steel.
This tantalizing Rosé beckons with enticing aromas of fresh nectarine, ripe strawberry and hints of wildflowers. On the palate the flavors are juicy and bright, with layers of zesty citrus, peach and summer melon gliding to a lush fruit and spice finish.
Blend: 40% Syrah, 26% Vermentino, 19% Carignan, 10% Mourvedre, 5% Grenache
