The Wine

Experience a sun-kissed summer day by
uncorking the 2021 Rosé, Miljenko’s Selection—a light,
refreshing wine with crisp acidity that will wake up your
senses and make you feel like you’re in the heart of Napa
Valley. A wonderful nose of sun-drenched fresh fruit
offers hints of forest strawberry and young white peach,
complemented by a hint of mint and green tea. Complex
aromas and flavors of succulent peach, strawberry, and
honeydew linger on the palate. Grapefruit acidity and
beautiful minerality accentuate the wine’s complexity and
mouthfeel, adding zest and vigor that carries through a
long finish.

Vintage

The growing season was free from severe
weather issues, and, despite the drought, our yield
increased 5-percent from 2020. We had no significant
rainfall past February, but mild spring and summer
conditions provided an ideal environment for grapes
to flower, bloom, and set in early spring. Notably cooler
temperatures in August and September allowed us to
pick each block at its ideal point of ripeness, leading to
outstanding quality and great concentration in the fruit.
Harvest drew to a close at the end of October, with the last
grapes arriving just before an atmospheric river brought
much-needed rain to Northern California.

Vineyard

We farm all of our certified organic
vineyards naturally, using the principles of regenerative
agriculture, and they are certified organic.

Winemaker's Notes

To craft this Napa Valley Rosé, we
relied on the traditional saignée method, allowing free-run
juice to drain out of the tank after one to five hours of skin
contact. The juice was kept cool during its five to six weeks
of fermentation to capture the maximum expression of
fresh aromas and flavors. Similar to Provence, Napa has
a Mediterranean climate, so we had southern France’s
chilled Rosés in mind when creating this refreshing wine
that shines whether you’re pairing it with food or drinking
it alone.
