Rosé of Pinot Noir, Holloran Vineyard Wines
Tangerine & strawberry aromas mix with spicy rhubarb notes on the nose. The palate offers more fresh strawberry plus hints of pineapple. The finish is crisp, with lemon zest highlights.
The 2020 growing season offered excellent spring rains for ground moisture to support the dry growing seasons they get in the WV. The rains in May did impact flowering and fruit set, resulting in a smaller than average fruit set and crop. They picked the Pinot Noir used to make this Rosé early, then pressed gently and slowly to allow minimal color extraction. They then fermented primarily in stainless steel.
