On the night of July 20, 1969, we stared at the moon and listened to the radio chatter of the Apollo 11 astronauts. Once voice boomed back to the listeners on Earth declaring, "That's one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind." This brand focuses on the emotions at play during the American Space Age, producing a grounded authenticity that speaks of the wine inside.
2022 Rosé, CaliforniaSpace Age
We work with a small group of select growers in the regions of Monterey, Santa Barbara and Edna Valley to provide us with our fruit: Grenache and a small amount of Cinsault. Sandy, well-drained soils and cooling offshore winds help preserve fruit-driven flavors and natural acidity. We focus on well-established vineyard blocks capable of providing the bright, exciting freshness of flavors that we require to produce this wine.
Our California Central Coast vineyards got off to a smooth start in 2022 with almost no frost, and mild conditions during bloom and fruit set. Summer was warm and dry, enabling us to harvest well before the late-season heat at excellent maturity. The resulting 2022 SPACE AGE ROSÉ captures perfectly the enticingly fresh, crisp flavors of the grapes we noted in the freshly picked fruit.
The pale pink “eye of the partridge color” of our 2022 SPACE AGE ROSÉ, favored by premier rosé producers in southern France’s Provence region, is testament to our gentle winemaking techniques. The wine shows focused, clean aromas and flavors, featuring strawberry and Bing cherry. On the finish, the fruit continues to express acidity and tantalizing flavors of fresh cherry and watermelon.
