Hudson Vineyards 2012 Grenache Rosé

2012 Vintage in the Vineyard:
A Grower’s Report

After several challenging vintages in a row it was great to have 2012, a near perfect vintage in both quality and quantity. The Spring was warm and dry. Bloom past with nearly ideal conditions. Summer gave us warm days and cool nights. By August we were right on schedule with a fine crop of beautiful fruit. Harvest went smoothly; quality and quantity were perfectly aligned. The vintage of the century. Onward and Upward.

Winemaker’s Comments by Christopher

Watermelon, satsuma pith, and ripe quince aromas frame the juicy tart qualities of this subtly pink colored wine. Our Grenache was whole-cluster pressed within hours from pick, in an effort to capture only the most vibrant and ethereal characteristics of this multi-faceted varietal. However, even with such austere treatment, this wonderful vineyard gives a mineral intensity and complexity to this wine that is quite distinctive. Nerdy, light, beguiling, and refreshing...

Tasting Notes

A beautiful rosé that simply put is the essence of rose petals. Initial floral notes unfold into delectable strawberries. It is fresh, floral and lively. Perfectly refreshing for the warm months ahead.
