2017 Sill Family Vineyards très ROSÉ de Chardonnay
Finally! The wine industry’s first: Burgundian and Bordeaux styled Rosé! Our 2017 très Chardonnay de Rose blends the very best of both wine worlds with the elegance, purity of fruit, harmony of an exceptional Burgundian Chardonnay along with the richness, complexity and depth of a Bordeaux-style Cabernet Sauvignon. Our resulting très Chardonnay de Rosé is an absolute first in the wine industry: exceptional Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes. For years I’ve studied producing a superior California Rosé born of my Provence and Bandol memories. A Rosé that’s rich, elegant, ultra quality and an extraordinarily different Rosé from those available here in the United States. Essentially, introducing an ultra premium Rosé for serious Rosé lovers while making a real difference in the industry.
What distinguishes our très Chardonnay de Rosé from all others is the grape varietals used along with the French white oak barrel aging. I contend that truly exceptional wines come from ultra superior grapes, such as Chardonnay and Cabernet Sauvignon. We barrel age a limited production of 98% Sonoma Coast Chardonnay blessed with 2% Rutherford bench Napa Cabernet Sauvignon wines, producing only these 300 bottles. A truly fresh marriage of the finest, most prestigious grapes producing this elegantly brilliant and floral Rosé. We are truly blessed with the unique terroir of our très Chardonnay de Rosé which supports this classic Provençal-style wine. CWSA Gold Medal recipient, and The Rose Competition Gold Medal recipient.
