2022 Journeyman Rosé – Concrete Fermentation Eggs are the centerpiece of our small winery. Our Rose’ is produced 100% with this unique vessel. The eggs allow for suspension of the lees (yeast) so that the resultant wine has more palate weight and complexity. In addition to the use of this special and rare fermenter, we apply a layered approach by using up to four pristine sources. The majority of this wine is from bleeds, which is removal of juice from freshly crushed red grapes, however about 30% of this wine was from a final thinning pass on our famous PEARL vineyard at 18 – 20 Brix. The result is a wider selection of grapes providing a greater the spectrum of flavor. The Pearl lot provides a gentle bump of natural acidity and minerality combined with ripe strawberry, crisp red cherry and, from Cathy’s first job, a nectar sno-cone.
