2020 Procedo Rose - Red Willow
Procedo wines are Northwest expressions of classic Piedmont and Tuscan-inspired varietals and red blends from heritage Northwest vineyards. The grapes for this Rosé were grown with intention, hanging heavy on selected rows to keep sugars in check and acidity levels high. Harvested mid-September, fruit was whole cluster pressed and inoculated to enhance fresh fruit flavors. The resulting wine was cold stabilized and held back from malolactic fermentation to keep the wine fresh and vibrant, as a special release for our Club.
PROFILE: Glistening hues of light coral to peach melba, signaling the first sign of summer sipping. Bright red berry, fresh strawberries, rhubarb and a hint of rose petal highlight this Italian inspired Rosato. Freshness drives this Rosé, although it is texturally luxurious enough to stand alongside summer grilling fare. Tart, lingering acids highlight the finish.
