Description

 

VINTAGE

2019 was even more abundant than an already “fruitful” 2018.  This was mainly due to the “late” rains, which lasted into May rather than ending in March.  Summer was cooler than usual which led to slow ripening and extended “hang-time”.  These conditions led to more even ripening and concentrated, complex flavors. 

 

 VINEYARD

The Reinke Vineyard lies in Napa Valley’s Carneros District, one of the finest winegrowing regions in the world for the thin-skinned Pinot Noir grape.  Cooling breezes off the San Pablo Bay mitigate daytime high temperatures and allow the grapes a longer hang time in which to develop flavor and intensity while preserving acidity and maintaining balance.

 

WINEMAKING

NVX has become a tradition at Judd’s Hill.  It is the first wine of the vintage and is perfect for sipping on the patio or serving with your Thanksgiving dinner.  Saignée (“sohn-yay”), was used in the winemaking process.  This method involves “bleeding” off a portion of red wine juice after it’s been in contact with the skins and seeds.  This produces a wine richer in style than other methods of rosé winemaking.

 

WINE DESCRIPTION

To bring the fruit forward we recomend serving this rosé slightly cooler than cellar temperature (55-59°), rather than straight from the refrigerator.  At this temperature the aromas of ripe strawberry are prominent and they carry through to the palate.  This is a well balanced witn with savory notes.

 

FOOD PAIRING

Sip this wine anytime, it is great with and without food.  Perfect for the Thanksgiving table but this rosé is versatile enough to be the star of your brunch menu.  Give it a try with something savory like a green chile and egg casserole or something sweet, like strawberry French toast.
