The good news is Summer is almost here and the 2012
Laughing pig rose is ready to ship to you!! We bottled last Sunday with
the help of some great friends! It has a floral nose of rose petals and
orange blossoms, rich pallet of strawberry and tart cherry that linger
into a crisp finish. Great as a sipper by itself, but as always dry rose
never has a problem accompanying a wide variety of fare. This is the
first wine of the 2012 vintage you've already been hearing great things
about. We made the 2012 rose with 50% Saigné that was placed on top of
an equal amount of fruit and allowed to soak and slowly start to ferment
for several days. This was then pressed and transferred to neutral
barrels. As we have always done, the 2012 LPR was fermented to dryness
with malolatic complete and bottled unfined and unfiltered. The color of
this rose is particularly beautiful with a great balance of lush fruit
and a little spice which leads you into a rich mouth feel. A beautiful
and balanced wine!
The bad news….. only 54 cases bottled.
