Ultraviolet Wines are an homage to the California climate where winemaker Samantha Sheehan grew up – it is a pure expression of fruit ripened under the California sun. Her rosé is refreshing, zesty and highly sippable, made only with organically farmed grapes and a small amount of sulfur.
This wine is 100% Pinot Noir from the Manchester Ridge vineyard on Mendocino Ridge. Manchester
Ridge sits at a 2,000 foot elevation above Anderson Valley, 400 feet above the fog line. These grapes have a longer hang time, allowing them to develop complex flavors and nuances. The cool, steady temperatures also alow the grapes to maintain acidity.
The finished base wine is added to stainless steel pressurized tanks, and then inoculated for secondary fermentation. The sparkling fermentation takes 6 weeks to complete charmant method fermentation at 48 degrees. Samantha then allows it to age on the lees in tank for 8 weeks before bottling.
Varieties: 100% Pinot Noir
Aging: 6 Months
Floral and mineral-driven with small, fine bubbles. Notes of white flowers,
rose petals, strawberry, raspberry, grapefruit zest.
