Rosé is often described as a summer wine and it is that but so much more. Our Estate GSM Rosé is made for every month of the year and for any night of the month. A copper-salmon hue fills the glass and immediately suggests you’re in for something mouthwatering.

Our 2023 vintage displays aromas of cherry, strawberry and ripe melon with rose floral notes. It is medium-bodied with bright acidity and a lingering red fruit finish, making it a perfect match for a variety of foods

Wine Profile
Vineyard
The grapes for our GSM Rosé were primarily sourced from our estate San Lucas Vineyard. San Lucas is located 17 miles south of our Greenfield winery. Here, the days are warmer and longer, yet cool down quite dramatically when the sun goes down, recording a greater day-to-night temperature differential. This brings out a lush blackberry fruitiness with a soft-on-the-palate feel. Hames Valley is located at the southern edge of Monterey County and has a climate characterized by a high day-to-night temperature differential, with a variation of up to 50° quite common. The resulting blend is a wonderfully balanced wine with abundant full fruit and a subtle spiciness and earthiness.
Varietal Composition
75% Grenache, 13% Syrah, 12% Mourvèdre
Winemaking
The grapes for our Rosé were destemmed, lightly crushed, and allowed to macerate on their red skins for 12 hours before being gently pressed. Maceration is the process of soaking the color and phenols out of the grape solids and allows for greater extraction of color and flavor. The insides of all grapes (both red and white) are white and produce clear juice – the color in red wine comes from contact with the dark skins. The longer the grape skins are left hanging out in the wine, the darker the color of the finished Rosé. Fermentation was conducted with select yeast in stainless steel at a cool temperature to retain the bright fruit esters and floral aromas.
