Ampelos Cellars Santa Ynez Valley Rosé of Syrah Ypsilon

Unbridled, a cunning smile with a peaches and cream complexion. Luscious ripe strawberries and quick whit. You melt into her creamy leather seats and hit 0 to 60 in 2.46 seconds. She'll love and leave you, but nothing about this ride will be forgotten! Blend: Syrah 75%, Grenache 19%, Riesling 6%

Production Method Our overall rose style is to keep the ripe flavor of the syrah grapes alive and allow for the natural aromas and flavors to come forward.A third of the cuatro vientos and the estate syrah was de-stemmed, crushed and cold soaked for 5 days to give it the beautiful glowing pink color and a deep red-wine alike mouth feel with light tanninsFrom 2011 we have not been using commercial yeast for fermentation – but rather let mother natures wild yeast do the job. we had 10 different batches in stainless steel tanks and barrels and they began a long, cold and slow fermentation – average fermentation time was around 28 daysNone of the batches were in contact with oak and they did not go through the second (malolactic) fermentation. before bottling did the blending of the components, fined and filtered themTo reduce our energy use we have replaced the electricity hungry, traditional cold stabilization with a product based on manoproteins – the results are amazing and we feel even more “green” by doing so
