2022 Jana Winery Rose of Tempranillo, Amador County
Blend: 100% Amador 91% Tempranillo Bray Vineyard Shenandoah Valley, 6% Vermentino Rubidoux Vineyard Fiddletown.
Vineyard/Vintage Notes: Produced from the Bray Vineyard in the Shenandoah Valley of Amador County. Small yields of flavorful grapes were harvested early to produce a light, low alcohol European style dry Rose of Tempranillo.
Winemaker’s Notes: Making this wine gives me a chance to produce a true European type Rosé in a light, crisp and dry style, like the wines we produced while I was working as an apprentice and going to winemaking school in Germany. This wine is made in the German “Weißherbst Kabinett” style.
Tasting Notes: Beautiful Rose/Salmon color, good balance, slate minerality on the front palate with a fresh crisp finish. Mango, tropical, juicy, melon, fresh rain on a dusty road, elegant are all great descriptors for this delicate light picnic Tempranillo Rose.
