Tasting Notes

Aromas of peach skin, yogurt, and underripe strawberry, with a smooth and fruit palate featuring flavors orchard fruits and creme fraiche. Great by itself but an incredibly food-friendly style.

About

Ser is an artisanal winery based out of Santa Cruz, CA, specializing in varietal, vineyard designate, old world style wines, produced in a natural way to allow the expression of their varietal character and the vineyards from which they are sourced. The Bechtold vineyard is one of the oldest standing vineyards in California. The vines are over 125 years old and deliver some of the most sought after fruit in the state. The rose is a Saignee style where the color comes from the "bleed" from crushed red fruit, so there is minimal skin contact resulting in a very light style. They use indigenous yeast, stainless steel ferment, and the wine is bottled prior to malolactic. Cinsault is the quintessential southern French grape that is appearing now all over the New World. It thrives under the hot sun, and can be found throughout the Rhône Valley, Languedoc, Roussillon, and some limited old vine plantings in California.. Seldom bottled on its own, it’s most often blended with Grenache, Mourvèdre, Carignan, and Counoise, though the options are almost limitless.
