2019 Arnot-Roberts Rosé of Touriga Nacional Lake County

2019 Arnot-Roberts Rosé of Touriga Nacional Lake County

This pretty little number is a domestic rosé that sells out every single year. Maybe a domestic equivalent in cache as Domaine Tempier Bandol Rosé, the 2019 Arnot-Roberts Rosé of Touriga Nacional, at just 11.3% alcohol, is a zippy dance across the tongue. Imagine yourself on the sunny shores of Tulum with crisp honey dew, Maldon sea salt, and lychee filling your tastebuds.

Vineyard Notes
Bernie Luchsinger emigrated to the United States in the mid 1960s from Chile and planted his vineyard in Kelseyville thirty years later. Now, Bernie along with his daughter Pilar are growing some of the most interesting grape varieties that we work with: both the Trousseau, and the Touriga Nacional for our rosé. The vineyard is planted at 1400’ on volcanic alluvium soils laid over ancient riverbed cobblestones in the Big Valley area west of Clear Lake, the second largest natural body of water in California after Lake Tahoe. These varieties both thrive in the long, warm days and cool nights of the Big Valley, and retain their acidity and personality well in this arid environment. We are lucky to have pioneers like the Luchsingers who were willing to take a risk with relatively unknown varieties in an effort to find what was best for their land, and in turn, gave us the opportunity to start something fresh. We feel fortunate for the gorgeous fruit cultivated each year under the watchful eyes of the Luchsinger family.

Production Notes
Whole cluster treaded, 24 hours of skin contact, then basket-pressed into stainless steel tanks. It underwent native yeast fermentation (no malolactic fermentation), and was filtered before bottling.
Other Notes
Arnot-Roberts was founded in Healdsburg in 2001 by childhood friends Duncan Arnot Meyers and Nathan Lee Roberts. Beginning with one barrel of wine made in their basement, the winery started small and grew slowly by sourcing grapes from some of the most remarkable vineyards in California.
