Le P'tit Paysan 2019 Pierre's Pirouette Rosé
The Mourvedre from the Le P'tit Paysan Rose is from two vineyards, one in the foothills of the Santa Cruz Mountains west of Gilroy (rocky, alluvial soils), the other is Spur Ranch in San Benito (limestone). The Grenache is from Arroyo Seco (granite), as is the Cinsault. Monterey/San Benito/Santa Clara Counties. The resulting blend offers intense aromas of grapefruit, watermelon, and sour cherry with crisp acidity and distinct minerality.
Blend: 57% Mourvedre, 34% Grenache, 9% Cinsault
About Le P'tit Paysan:
Part of the I. Brand family of wineries, Le P'tit Paysan is Ian Brand's interpretation of French insipred "village" level wines. These wines are made from vineyard sources throughout Monterey County that can't quite shine on their own but are perfectly blended together for wines greater than the sum of their parts.
