Our last vintage of this rosé of Pinot Noir, the 2021 originates in the South and Lower Blocks (1/2 acre sections of the Home Vineyard). Rosés are normally produced from high-yielding vines, since weight, concentration, and longevity are not typically the main goals with such wines. This wine was produced from extremely low yields of about 0.75 ton/acre in 2021, making it a rare phenomenon and giving it – even at its very low 9.1% ABV – the concentration and ability to age for decades just like a top-class red Pinot Noir.
