"Twice Removed feels like family. Not like the family you know, more like distant cousins, back from adventures abroad. Made straight from whole cluster pressed grapes, not with the extra juice designed for the drain. Once you get to know Rosé, you'll feel like old friends." - Jordan Kivelstadt, Wayward Son
Created from grapes picked only for rosé, this elegant wine will go head-to-head with any bottle from France’s famed Provence! Produced from Venturi Vineyard in Mendocino. Larry Venturi is a 3rd generation farmer tending to vines planted on his family's historic site in Calpella (Ukiah), in Mendocino County. Planted in the late 1940’s, this nearly 80 year-old vineyard is still amazingly healthy and productive. The vines are head trained and have been dry farmed since inception. The vineyard is farmed Certified Organic.
Varietals: 53% Grenache Noir & 47% Carignane
The Grenache and Carignane were harvested on the same day. The Grenache was lightly foot tread in the picking bins, topped with dry ice, wrapped with shrink wrap and left to soak overnight. Carignane was pressed whole cluster and blended to co-ferment in stainless steel. The wine was cold fermented for 4-5 weeks.
Affectionately called Sonoma Summer Water, this wine is light with steely minerality. Aromas are punctuated by bright cranberry, grapefruit and savory herbs. By using grape varieties made famous in the Rhône Valley, we attain a mid palate that makes this perfect with light food or alone!
