WAVES is a super fun project where we get to make delicious, sexy wines and put them in a can. Our ideal rosé for a can was light and zippy with big fruit, and this combination of varieties gives us that with a powerhouse of freshness. The gentle sparkle really makes this a fun wine to enjoy out of the can or in a glass. The varietal composition we came up with for this wine seems a little crazy, but the vintage called for a little bit of white wine to lean out the big reds. We co-fermented early picked Viognier juice with Zinfandel, Carignan, and Petite Sirah and we love the combination. Aromas of pomegranate, red plum and white cherry along with hints of stone. The palate shows raspberry, gooseberry and white cherry in abundance, bright acidity and a light sparkle and a bit of texture in the finish.
This wine was not fined but it was filtered.
