2018 Troglodyte Rosato

2018 Troglodyte Rosato

Varietals: Pinot Noir, Riesling, Gewürztraminer, Cabernet Franc

Vineyard: Several different vineyards, as is the intent with the Troglodyte line

RS: 5g/L  ABV: 12.0%

Flavor Notes: The majority Pinot Noir in this blend provides light cherry and juicy apple fruitiness, balanced by subtle hints of oak and vanilla from barrel ageing. Small amounts of Cabernet Franc saignée, Gewürztraminer, and Riesling were blended in for boldness, spicy personality, and crisp acidity, respectively. This is a fun, fruity, and quenching wine perfect for a hot summer day.

Pairings: Our Rosato is a classic wine to be enjoyed alone or with food.  Think fresh fruit, cheese, fun filled social occasions, or something off of the grill.

Vinification: Winemaker Sean O’Keefe planned on the Pinot Noir being the base for the Rosato, and waited until the light and fruity Bella Vista Vineyard Pinot Noir was ready.  He then experimented with blending in Riesling, Gewürztraminer, and Cabernet Franc saignée until the perfect balance was achieved. It is considered a hybridization between the two rosato techniques—either basing the wine around one varietal or blending red and white together. 

Suggested Cellaring: Enjoy now through 2023 and look for subtle changes over time. 

Troglodyte: a term chosen by owner Marty Lagina that means “cave dweller”, appropriate for how our winemaking team dwell in the Mari wine caves. It was a term of derision back in the day, but we’re bringing it back with a more positive vibe. The Troglodyte line features wines sourced from our various vineyards with an intent on balanced blending.
