Ruby Dry Rose

Ruby Dry Rose

This saignée Ruby Dry Rosé is rich and flavorful, crisp and refreshing.  Bright notes of berries and watermelon lead to a full palate of resh fruit with a zesty finish.

What’s the Saignée Method?
Johnson Estate’s 2017 Ruby Dry Rose was made from estate-grown Maréchal Foch grapes which were picked when fully ripe.  The juice was “bled off” just an hour or so after the grapes were picked and the remaining grapes were used to make our traditional Maréchal Foch varietal wine.  Thus, this light and fresh rosé juice has not been through the press nor is it fermented with grape skins.  This traditional process of making rosé wine is called “the saignée method”.  The resulting crisp, ruby-colored wine has an aroma of strawberries and cranberries and a velvety and full mouth-feel redolent of raspberries.  Strong elements of fresh fruit and very light tannins result in the perfect summer wine.

They brought me rubies from the mine,
And held them to the sun:
I said, they are drops of frozen wine
From Eden's vats that run.

- Waldo Emerson
