2020 Broc Cellars ‘Love’ Rosé
Tasting Notes ~ Chris Brockaway makes a wide range of California wine but the common denominators are that they must be made without additives (other than a small amount of SO2 as necessary), always fermented with indigenous yeasts, using grapes from vineyards that do not use synthetic chemicals. A blend of 85 percent Valdiguié, 14 percent Zinfandel, and 1 percent Trousseau - the fruit was foot stomped and left on the skins for 12 hours. Pressed into stainless steel tank where all three varieties fermented together just over 18-21 days. Spice comes from the Zinfandel, acidity from the Valdiguié and texture from the Trousseau. This is a 100% finished wine, meaning it fermented until it went dry using only native yeasts and went through spontaneous malolactic fermentation. 1,800 cases produced. Limited availability.
