Lucy Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir Rosé
Lucy is the sister wine to Lucia Wines, part of the renown Pisoni family. Made since 2003 from Pinot Noir that is 100% estate fruit and hand harvested then sorted by hand upon arrival at the winery. Most rosés are produced by one of two methods: Whole Cluster Pressing or Saignée. But Lucy is not like most rosés; she is the culmination of both methods. First, fruit is sent directly to the press to be squeezed, where immense measure is taken to retain only the most delicate and aromatic juice. Then, a small amount of juice is drained from a tank of grape clusters, known as the Saignée technique, giving it a slightly more pronounced color. The marriage of these two traditional approaches create a uniquely delicate rosé like no other.
A dedicated set of old barrels then hold Lucy safe, cultivating a slight amount of texture and roundness without the wood flavor. Upon sleeping for 3 months, our beautiful Lucy is bottled in clear glass, allowing her color to be admired in full view. Only a limited amount of Lucy is produced each year. Winery donates a portion of proceeds to fund Breast Cancer Research.
Brilliant salmon pink color, this is a chic and sophisticated Rosé that is ripe with freshly picked raspberry and strawberry compote. Balanced and refreshing on the palate, superb for BBQ chicken, roasted fish, vegetable kebobs, or light salad.
