Martha Stoumen Wines Post Flirtation Rose 2019
|Region||California, North Coast, Mendocino|
|Brand||Martha Stoumen Wines|
This rosé is bursting at the seams with summer. Peak season strawberry leads the flavor parade, while hints of pomegranate and rhubarb add a touch of bitter and tart, and neutral barrel fermentation + a tad of residual sugar rounds out the palate; a lively wine that will be fun to drink on hot days and warm nights.
The Zinfandel gets pressed whole cluster, and is lightly racked (capturing the majority of juice lees) to barrel for fermentation. We foot tread the Negroamaro and leave it on stems and skins overnight prior to pressing it directly to neutral barrel for fermentation. I prefer using barrels for rosé fermentations instead of stainless-steel tanks. It softens the wine and creates a welcoming, round body; contrasting many rosés that can be quite angular. Soon after primary and malolactic fermentation, we racked this wine off the lees to keep it fresh and light. The outcome being a nicely balanced wine, soft yet full of energetic, textural acidity. The Negroamaro is a special addition to this year’s blend, and we started working with Fox Hill Negroamaro specifically with this wine in mind. It adds some exotic flavors and textures to the pure strawberry notes of Zin rosé. This is a classic Post Flirtation wine — exuberant and almost too easy to drink! - Martha Stoumen
