Bernardus Rosé is made from our freshly pressed Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir grapes and is the result of a classic Burgundian technique developed to produce highly-concentrated Pinot Noirs.
As the grapes are being crushed we bleed off a small percentage of the juice before it has a chance to absorb much color from the grape skins. For the grapes in the fermenter, this means a better juice to skin ratio resulting in a Pinot with more intense color and structure. The barely colored juice we obtain is then fermented to dryness providing us with a delicious, light and fruity Rosé of Pinot Noir.
100% Santa Lucia Highlands.
Cold fermented in stainless steel at cold temperatures to enhance and protect its fresh, fruity character.
