Terra d'Oro Rosé 2020
The Terra d’Oro 2020 Rosé is a complex, yet refreshing, wine that radiates a gorgeous, delicate pink hue in the glass. Intense aromas of strawberry, lychee, watermelon rind, wet stone and persimmon are framed by hints of cut grass and guava. The palate is bursting with an entry of fresh fruits, such as persimmon, grapefruit and melon before leading into a finish full of crisp minerality
Vintage 2020 brought ideal conditions in Amador County for growing flavorful Grenache and Nebbiolo, the centerpiece of this exquisite Rosé. A slow start to the growing season brought even ripening as the grapes developed beautifully to create rich, ripe, fruity characteristics
26% Nebbiolo 74% Grenache
The Grenache and Nebbiolo grape clusters were harvested early in the morning hours, then gently crushed into press before the juice was fermented in 100% stainless steel and allowed to sit in contact with lees for 4 months to add viscosity to the midpalate. The result is a crisp, medium-bodied and off-dry wine with deep flavor and versatility, perfect for a springtime afternoon.
Food Pairing Notes
An incredibly versatile wine, the Terra d’Oro 2020 Rosé pairs beautifully with brown butter gnocchi, lightly seasoned salmon or sushi.
