Sea Shell Cellars 2018 Grenache Rosé


2018 Grenache Rosé

Composition: 100% Grenache

Sea Shell Vineyard

Soil Type:

Rolling alluvial terraces with decomposed limestone deposits along its slopes


This Rosé was made entirely from Grenache vines that were farmed with the intent of making a Direct-to-Press pink wine. The fruit was harvested early in order to retain lots of natural acidity and then it was placed directly in the press and squeezed, with only minimal skin contact time in order to give the wine its delicate color.

Aging and Duration:

This Rosé was kept in stainless steel for the 2.5 months between the end of its fermentation and bottling in order to preserve as much freshness in the wine as possible.

Out of the glass, this vibrant Rosé bursts with notes of fresh stone fruits… succulent white peaches, crisp nectarines, and even classic California Blenheim apricots!  On the palate, this wine stays the course with more calming notes of peach black tea and fresh cut pomelo.  The crisp acidity and balance of this wine give it enough verve to wake you up and refresh you on a scorching summer day while also providing enough mouthwatering flavors to make it feel like summertime even when it’s snowing outside.
