V Diora La Belle Fete Rose
To compliment any of our meals or salads!
Veteran winemaker, James Ewart, oversees the team and the small-lot winery built in the vineyard. Diora is the culmination of experience, patience and an unwavering commitment to craft a signature style all our own. The Pinot Noir for this Rosé is harvested earlier in the season when good natural acidity remained in the grapes. Picked in the early morning to minimize color extraction, the fruit was brought immediately to the winery in small bins. We blended a small amount of Grenache Rosé to lift the strawberry notes and a touch of beautifully aromatic Chenin Blanc to bring the floral fragrance. A small amount of the blend (11.7%) was barrel fermented in neutral oak to add just a touch of fatness on the palate. The rest was fermented in stainless steel. After two months, the wine was bottled.
