Dry, crisp and pretty in pink! In the glass, its coral hue is intense and inviting. On the nose, the fragrance of wild strawberry and kaffir lime leaf meet you halfway to the first sip. Light flavors of raspberry and plum skin are balanced with hints of dried pear and apricot. It's forgiving, silky and yet crisp on the palate. Sure to be a crowd pleaser with its lingering finish. 

This character of a rosé is a perfect pair with Thanksgiving turkey: make sure to stock up soon.

The unusual Freisa varietal sourced for Saddleback's fragrant 2017 rosé was found growing in a Russian River vineyard when Nils grabbed it specifically to make a blush wine. After the results of the effort were a success, Nils went to ask for another Freisa contract for 2018, and found that it would no longer be available. So 2017 will be our only vintage of Freisa Rosé. Serve chilled... Savor it while it lasts!

Wine Profile
Production Notes
The Freisa was harvested in Sonoma and rushed to Saddleback, where it was whole-cluster pressed for 8 hours with skin contact. Cold-fermented at 50 degrees, fermentation was completed in neutral French oak barrels, and blended with 13% saignée from our Penny Lane Sangiovese. Lees stirred for six months.
Food Pairing Notes
This rosé is quite versatile. Try with light meats like a grilled chicken or pork loin, and a variety of dishes, including deep-dish pizza, turkey sandwiches and composed salads. On its own, pair with Point Reyes Toma, Wagon Wheel, Teleme cheeses and Marcona almonds.
