Description

Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Petite Sirah, and Counoise

A labor of "amour", this estate-bottled, single-vineyard, dry Provençal-style Rosé melds five distinct Rhône varieties to create one singular sensation that is seamlessly balanced, refreshingly crisp, and always hard to resist. 100% Wine Creek Ranch, CCOF-certified organic estate fruit.

Vinification: Handpicked fruit at varying times depending on each varietal's readiness and maturity as a component for Rosé. This intentional approach supplies fruit that is intense in flavor, lower in alcohol, and with balanced acidity for Rosé, as opposed to red wine. There is 0% saignée (bleeding red wine tanks at higher sugars) as the winemaking team does not feel this yields the highest quality. Each lot was cold-soaked, pressed, and vinified separately. Cool, never cold, fermentation, no malolactic fermentation, and mixing both stainless steel and neutral barrels for fermentation and aging results in a pure, focused wine that perfectly reflects its terroir and varietal makeup.

Notes of cranberry, rhubarb, raspberry, red currant, watermelon, black pepper, Texas Ruby Red grapefruit, strawberry, and a thirst-quenching acidity in the finish to cleanse your palate.

In the 16th to 18th centuries, the area we know as Sonoma County appeared on European maps as a mythical kingdom called "Quivira" whose streets were said to be paved with gold. The legend faded but the treasure endures: Today, the region's "gold" is the acres of grapevines that thrive here.Named in honor of the mythical realm, this small, family-owned winery comprises four distinct vineyards in the Dry Creek appellation and produces 100 percent estate-bottled Zinfandel, Sauvignon Blanc and several Rhne varietals. Owners Pete and Terri Kight believe a holistic, sustainable approach to farming leads to the most vibrant, flavorful fruit. Quivira has been a DemeterCertified Biodynamic and Organic estate since 2005. Its facilities are further enhanced by a solar-powered winery and a restored salmon and trout-spawning creek. A Biodynamic garden and free-range chickens provide produce and eggs to local farmers' markets and restaurants.In crafting Quivira wines, winemaker and grower Steven Canter employs artisan techniques such as native yeast fermentation, large oak foudres, basket press and barrel-to-barrel racking. "The potential of any great wine comes from the site and the season, once off the vine, it's a matter of how much of that potential we can capture.
