We are excited to unveil a lovely new wine: our 2016 La Sirena Rosato - Rosé of Primitivo. We have been considering the idea of making a rosé for a few years, waiting for the right grapes that could offer a unique twist to most rosé wines. Along came a fairly young vineyard in Amador county with some Primitivo grapes available to us. I thought it would make a fun and delicious rosé and had never seen a Primitivo rosé in the market before. Voila! Something new and different was born.
Our first Rosé from La Sirena is a lovely rose petal color. Made from 100% Primitivo grapes from the foothills of California in Amador County, our Rosato has clean delicate floral aromas and fresh, fruity components of watermelon and tangerine. Lush yet crisp across the palate, flavors of cherry lozenge, lemon drop and a touch of minerality. A dry rosé with unusual nuances and finesse.
