Tasting Notes
In the world of art, to “Shape” is to create, to mold, to take raw material and transform it into a masterpiece while reflecting certain influences and characteristics of its creator. Here we see this process done as Grenache and Mourvédre come together to shape this Rosé into a well rounded and invigorating work of art. Soft aromas of rose petals, citrus, and fresh strawberries introduce this Rosé while clean crisp flavors of bright cherry and lemon zest meet on the palate to create a refreshing sensation. This beautifully balanced and complex wine yields a light, smooth finish of guava and watermelon.
Winemaker Notes
The Shape is a Rosé co-fermented blend made of 80% Grenache and 20% Mourvédre. The fruit was grown at the Kærskov Vineyard in the Los Olivos District AVA of Santa Barbara County. The two varietals were picked on the same night and then gently crushed and soaked to extract color before pressing. The juice was cold fermented in stainless steel and aged for 6 months. This allowed us capture the light but complex flavors that the two varietals have to offer. This is a great summer wine that should be enjoyed outside with the best of friends.
