13th Street 2007 Cuvee 13 Rosé
This is a blend of 55% Pinot Noir and 45% Chardonnay made in the traditional method, which means the wines goes through a secondary fermentation in the bottle and subsequent sitting around with the yeast cells. The length of that secondary fermentation and time in bottle depends on the style the winemaker is looking for. According to Peter Bodner Rod of 13th Street this wine spent 24 months on bottle lees, then another 6-8 months after tirage and dosage (removing of lees and adding the filler) resting in bottle. The result, 13th Street first Rosé sparkler, has lemon and green apple tartness with a kiss of strawberry … this ain’t no sweet sipper, it’s fully dry – that kiss from the strawberry helps make it extra tasty. Good balancing acidity here too. Price: $24.95 – Rating: ****
