When Starmont first appeared on a label in 1989, the name has been recognized for classically styled varietal wines that are expressive and approachable. Now, nearly 30 years later, led by Winemaker Jeff Crawford Starmont is producing some of their best wines ever as part of the Merryvale Family of Wines. Focused on sustainability and making the highest quality wines, the Stanly Ranch Estate Vineyard has been Napa Green Certified since 2007.
This Rosé is a light, fresh style highlighting minimal skin contact with the Pinot Noir grapes, and showcasing key aromatics and bright acidity. They make this wine using two distinct production techniques and source the fruit specifically for this type of wine which allows for high natural acidity, low natural alcohol, and fresh fruit characteristics by picking the grapes at optimal ripeness for Rosé. Pale salmon in color, this refreshing wine displays bright aromas of green strawberry and carnation on the nose. A tight entry on the palate gives way to a subtle creaminess on the mid-palate and a focused and lingering acidity on the finish.
