On February 3, 2010, Demeter USA, the only certification agent for Biodynamic® farms in the United States, certified the 17-acre estate vineyard and garden at DeLoach Vineyards, fully compliant with their standards for Demeter Biodynamic status. As one of only sixty-four wineries or vineyards in the U.S. with Demeter certified Biodynamic estates vineyards, DeLoach is among an elite group of sustainable wine grape growers committed to farming in parallel with the Earth’s natural cycles.
A warm spring lead to early bud break and created the perfect environment for flowering and fruit set. With warm days and cool nights, grape growers were able to maintain ideal acid levels with optimum, bright fruit flavors.
This wine was made in a deliberate rosé style: the grapes were destemmed for overnight juice-skin contact, followed by basket-pressing the juice to neutral barrels for fermentation sur lie. Five months barrel aging with lees stirring contributes a bit of richness and palate breadth. As the skins contain most of the tannins, the structure of this rosé has less of tannic mouthfeel than a typical saignée style rosé.
Opens with racy aromas of vibrant roses, bright cherries and tempting notes of tangerine. Crisp
Crisp and full-flavored, the wine glides across the palate and sails to a delightful finish leaving behind hints of blood orange zest and wild strawberry.
