An elegant, dry Rosé wine. This seductive wine is fresh and well balanced. It has a bright intense pink color. Both on the nose and palate it has a distinct Syrah character, with some spiciness and hints of strawberries and lively floral flavors, mainly Roses as well as orange peel. With good fruit concentration it shows richness in texture across the palate that leads to a delightfully long finish.
Montes Cherub is a blend of 100% Syrah from the Archangel Estate in Marchiqüe. The vineyards, atop western facing loam and clay slopes, receive cool breezes from the nearby Pacific Ocean. As a result, a slow, gentle grape maturation ensured the perfect balance of concentrated fruit and bright acidity - yield was 3.2 tons per acre. Once fully ripe, the grapes were hand-picked and carefully selected on rooftop sorting tables. After a very gentle crushing, the grapes were transported by gravity to the tanks below, where they underwent the classic French Vin d'une Nuit or Wine of the Night maceration for 6 to 8 hours at 50°F. The combination of this cold pre-fermentation maceration and cool evening temperatures result in a greater extraction of aromas and color. Upon completion of this process, the wine was racked and underwent alcoholic fermentation for 18 to 20 days at 59°F.
