Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2017 Vin Gris is comprised of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Petit Verdot, and Chambourcin. Aromas of raspberry, strawberry, and peach open to a palate rich with strawberry. Refreshing acidity and fruitiness linger through the finish.

Winemaker Notes
Our 2017 Vin Gris is made through a method called saignée which translates from French "to bleed”. All of the color and much of the flavor in a red wine comes from the skins. Therefore, all red wine fermentations takes place in contact with the skins. One way of increasing the concentration of color, aroma, and flavor in a red wine is by increasing the percentage of skins in contact with juice in a red fermenter. To do this, we drain 10-15% of the liquid from each of our red fermenters after only 4-6 hours in contact with skins. The juice that has been bled is a lovely pink color and subsequently fermented separately in small batches. Upon completion of fermentation, all of these rosé wines are blended together to become our Vin Gris.
Food Pairing Notes
Try it with cheesy dishes such as Quiche Lorraine or a simple Margherita Pizza. Please don’t let those suggestions limit you; dry rosés, such as our 2017 Vin Gris, are extremely food friendly and can be paired with a variety of dishes.
