2019 Banshee Rosé, Mendocino County
91 Points - Wine Enthusiast
The 2019 Mendocino County Rosé is a lovely shade of pale salmon with aromas of rose water, salinity and fresh picked strawberries. Bright flavors of juicy cantaloupe and honeydew melon are highlighted by a touch of Meyer lemon. Racy acidity and elegance are balanced perfectly in this dry, crisp Rosé.
Whole cluster pressed with minimal skin contact. The components were fermented separately at cool temperatures in stainless steel tanks. A small portion of the wine is fermented and aged in neutral oak barrels.
