2018 Ryder Estate Pinot Noir Rosé
Ryder Estate wines are crafted from sustainably farmed estate vineyards on California’s golden Central Coast. The Central Coast is blessed with cool ocean air that blankets the vineyards in the early morning until the warm sun peaks through the clouds in the afternoon. This wonderful combination of sea, sunshine and soil makes perfect growing conditions for the grapes to develop intense flavors and elegant character that is true to each varietal.
After gentle crushing, the wine is allowed eight hours of skin contact to extract aromatics, flavor and its exquisite, light pigment. The wine is then gently pressed, racked to stainless steel tanks and slowly fermented to dryness at a cool 50°F to preserve the varietal aromatics.
The Ryder Estate Pinot Noir Rosé is crisp, fragrant and refreshing. Strawberry, raspberry and cherry aromas lead into a compelling palate of luscious fruit flavors framed by crisp, refreshing acidity.
