Broc Cellars Corteza Grenache Rosé 2021
Broc Cellars Corteza Grenache Rosé has a light pink colour in the glass, from which wafts a white strawberry nose. Guava and white peach flavours dominate the light-bodied and mineral-driven palate.
95% Grenache Noir and 5% White Zinfandel. The fruit for this wine comes from Corteza Vineyard, located in Contra Costa Country in the historic town of Knightsen. The Grenache was planted in 1991 and the soil consists of clay loam. Artemio Cortez purchased the vineyard in 2015. He has a young family of five so it is important for him to farm the vineyard with natural nutrients, completely free of chemicals – using only organic practices.
Left whole-cluster for carbonic maceration over one week. Pressing to stainless steel to ferment for 12 days. The wine ages in neutral French oak barrel for 6 months. No filtering before bottling.
