Forlorn Hope Queen of the Sierra Rosé 2021
The Queen of the Sierra rosé was organically grown on the Rorick estate vineyard in Calaveras County at 2000’ elevation, featuring soils comprised of a layer of schist over dolomite-rich limestone.
The fruit was hand-picked and whole-cluster pressed into stainless steel; fermentation was allowed to begin spontaneously with native yeast. The wine was racked off of lees in December following primary ferment, and bottled unfiltered in February 2020.
As with all Forlorn Hope wines, no new oak is utilized, and nothing was added to the must or wine (no cultured yeast, ML bacteria, water, tartaric acid, enzymes, nutrients, etc) with the exception of minimal effective SO2.
We drink pink all year long so yeah it’s rosé season, baby. Mondeuse, Barbera, Tempranillo, Grenache + Zinfandel make up this sultry, salty minx.
