In producing our first vintage of Rosé, we wanted this wine to be a great representation of Waugh. We decided to model the Rosé after our Junior, which is a blend of all the red varietals we grow, source and produce (9 in total). We decided to utilize the top 3 varietals in Junior to produce our Rosé. Zinfandel, Syrah and Petite Sirah were used in the production of this Rosé. Each varietal spent about 30 minutes on the skins in the press before going to tank and fermenting. The 3 were blended together to create Waugh Rosé.
You will notice the gorgeous rich strawberry hue and your first sip will delight with fresh berries and a crisp flavor of tart cherry, red apple and cool citrus on the mid-palate, carrying a bright acidity to a long lingering finish.
