2019 Balletto Rose' of Pinot Noir
Rosé should be that wonderful, joyful wine that’s light, pretty and full of life. To coax the most complexity and balance from our pinot, we whole-cluster press 95 percent of the blend and bleed off 5 percent from our regular fermentation. The combination of the two methods gives the best of both styles. The whole-cluster portion makes the framework with acidity and minerality. The bleeds from the fermenters fill in the middle with bright fruit and texture. Together, they create the whole picture.
