2020 Aglianico Rosé

With its striking acidity, powerful fruit and firm tannins, Aglianico can make a beautiful, aromatic yet serious rosé. Heringer Vineyard is located in Clarksburg AVA. With the rich alluvial soil, the modestly warm days and the cool breezes winding through the nearby Delta, the Aglianico struggles here to accumulate much sugar. Rather than dark and brooding, the fruit retains more delicacy and brightness.

Vinification

At picking the grapes had around 20 brix and very high acidity. It was immediately whole cluster pressed to minimize color extract. It fermented without additions in stainless steel and neutral wood.

Tasting Notes

The 2019 Aglianico Rosé is a beautiful pale pink color with crystalline aromas of tiny red strawberries and fresh grapefruit rind. The delicacy of the color and aromatics belie the sneaky concentration of the wine. The palate opens with snappy acidity and finishes with expansive power.
