With a nose of Pink Lady apple and strawberry, the 2018 Vincent Vineyards Sweet Rose is like drinking a melted strawberry popsicle. Even with the residual sugar, the higher acidity balances this wine beautifully and chilled down, this wine screams to be drunk on a lazy summer day.
Uncommon to California concrete tanks became all the rage in France after WWll due to the high prices of oak and stainless steel. The concrete, porous unlike stainless steel produces a slightly softer acidity. Notes of lemongrass and grapefruit linger on the palette. With a crisp bright clean finish, this seems to be the perfectly balanced white Bordeaux varietal.
This Sauvignon Blanc was named Platinum Blonde not only after her sister but also by its resemblance to the story of Goldilocks, as it was composed of three different picks of our estate Sauvignon Blanc. One early, one middle, and one late. This creates a layered effect of a little bit acidic and citrus fruit, a low melon body weight, and a little bruised melon. This creates a wine with linear acidity, but very real juiciness in the center. Some pear. A little stonefruit on the finish.
