2017 Troglodyte Rosato

2017 Troglodyte Rosato

Vintage: 2016                                                              RS: 5-6g/L

Varietals: Based on mostly Pinot Noir with some Riesling and Gewürztraminer blended in

Vineyard: Several different vineyards


Flavor Notes: The Pinot Noir provides light cherry and juicy apple fruit, balanced by subtle hints of oak and vanilla from barrel ageing. Gewürztraminer adds a spicy quality while Riesling brings the acid to this off-dry blend.


Suggested Pairings: Rosato is a classic wine to enjoy by itself. It’s fun and fruity, but with balance. Think fresh fruit, cheese, fun filled social occasions, or something off of the grill. Avoid overburdening with heavy entrees. This is a great choice for holiday season family gatherings.


Processing: This was made from blending red (Pinot Noir) and white wine (Riesling/Gewürztraminer) together, rather than basing it around one single varietal. Winemaker Sean O'Keefe planned on the Pinot Noir being the base for the Rosato, and he waited until the light and fruity Bella Vista Vineyards Pinot Noir was ready.  He then experimented with blending in the two white wines until he struck balance.


Cellaring Recommendations: Drink now through 2019 and look for subtle changes.
