2020 Troon Vineyard Rosé Kubli Bench Applegate Valley

Troon’s rosé is a blend of 60 percent Primitivo (Italian) and 40 percent Tinta Roriz (Portuguese), grown organically and biodynamically in the winery’s estate Kubli Bench Vineyard. The fruit was whole-cluster pressed and co-fermented with ambient cultures, then bottled after five months of stainless steel aging.

Its palest pink robe is redolent of apple and apple blossom, mint, and fresh-cut grass. The palate delivers firm acidity and crisp fruit, like biting into a crackly red apple. The overall impression is cooling and piquant, but at the finish there’s a flare of tropical fruit.

Pair it with picnic fare.
