2019 Hog Wild Rose
Richer than our regular Rosé of Pinot Noir. The Hog Wild Rosé jumps out of the glass with sweet aromas of watermelon candy, rose petal, red currants, and vanilla cream soda. Once sipped, it has a luscious, creamy texture with pear juice and key lime flavors with a long, lingering finish.
How we make our Hog Wild Rosé
Our Rosé is made of free-run juice collected from hand-picked Pinot Noir grapes as they move through the processing line and fermented clear in stainless steel tanks until all the sugar has been converted into alcohol. The color is achieved by an addition of 2-3% Pinot Noir, giving us the ability to have consistent color year after year. Finished with a screw-cap for continuously fresh and available wine ready for a day at the beach or a hearty holiday meal.
The 2019 Vintage
After a warm May and a healthy, early fruit-set, the summer ended cool with no threat of the sunburn or hazy, smoky skies seen in recent years. We expected to pick in early September, but weeks of unseasonably cool weather took us by surprise. Rather than rushing to pick too early, we waited patiently for concentrations and sugar levels to rise. Expect wines with a big ripe core of concentrated fruit and a bright, fresh profile.
