Inspired by coastal maritive influences, Meiomi Rose bursts with vibrant, floral aromas and mouthwatering fruit flavors of strawberry, cranberry and watermelo. Our off-drive Rose offers a touch of honey and silkiness on the palata, complemented by bright acidity and notes of rose petal and orange peel.
The Meiomi Rosé was made using two simple approaches. In the first, the fruit is pressed very gently, then fermented cold in stainless steel tanks. In the second method, saignée, red fruit is destemmed to tank, then a portion of its juice is drained from the tank. Similar to pressed juice, the saignée was fermented cold in a stainless steel tank away from the grape skins. Since the color of a wine comes primarily from the skins, removing the juice from the core fermentation allows us to make a very light and delicate wine. This vintage of Meiomi Rosé is comprised predominantly of Pinot Noir.
Delicately pink in color, Meiomi Rosé is delightfully dry with vibrant acidity. The wine opens to delicate aromas of watermelon, orange peel, and subtle hints of rose petal. The palate offers a lush mouthfeel with flavors of stone fruit and strawberry with a cool minerality on the finish.
