Day Wines 2018 Hock & Deuce Rosé

If you were anywhere in the western half of the state in summer 2018, you noticed one thing in particular – smoke. It was everywhere, and southern Oregon saw more than its fair share. But winemaking is a game of adaptation, and when nature gives you smoke, you make rosé! Rather than risking skin contact and making a red wine tainted by smoke, Brianne chose instead to pick a bit earlier and press the juice off the skins directly into barrel for fermentation. It was a gamble, and did it ever pay off.

The 2018 Hock & Deuce Rosé, like the red, is a blend of Syrah and Viognier. It turns out they combine to make a seriously lovely pink wine, as well. Familiar red fruits like strawberry and currant show up first on the nose, followed by subtle notes of blueberry and pluot (this is a Syrah wine, after all). The red fruits carry through on the palate where ripe cantaloupe melon joins the fray. But it wouldn't be Syrah without a little sauvage in the form of dusty stones and cured prosciutto. The acids are wonderfully integrated and hold the multi-faceted palate together even through the second day of being open. It's a gastronome's rosé for sure, so stock up and ready the feast.

75% Syrah & 25% Viognier. Fermented in neutral French oak barrels with native yeasts for 8 months. Full malo-lactic fermentation.
