Racking the Dusted Valley Kn'a Rose!
Friday, we racked the Kn'a Rose off its remaining lees, in anticipation of getting it ready for bottling here soon! This wine is really developing into a classic style Rose. This wine is quite dry, with a refreshing palate. Great acid and light tannins carry the watermelon and light citrus and floral notes. This is a blend of Mourvedre, Cuniose, Syrah and a touch of Viognier for aromatics. A very Southern Rhone inspired blend! Bottling is scheduled for the 1st of March and then looking at an early Spring release, just in time for when the patio and bbq season start to heat up. This wine will pair great with Grilled Hermiston Watermelon Skewers with Montaillet Chevre and a Reduced Balsamic Glaze.
