Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Bright aromas of fresh strawberries, raspberries, and melon mingle with hints of rose petal, with a refreshing acidity and hints of minerality from aging in a concrete egg.
90 Points - The Terroirist Wine Blog - "Pale pink color. Bright aromas of lemons, limes, grapefruit, dandelion, lilies, and white pepper (a lot going on!). Tangy as hell, medium-bodied, with flavors of peaches, limes and nectarine. The mineral, quinine, limestone and chalk dust elements are really complex, and I get a mix of spicy white pepper, barley, oregano as well. Complex, zesty, fruity, mineral-driven, balanced so nicely. All Pinot Noir that is fermented and aged in concrete eggs."

Vineyard Notes
This Castello Estate vineyard was purchased in 2015 from Burt Williams, founder of the iconic Williams Selyem Winery. The 12 acre vineyard, located just north of the town of Philo in Anderson Valley, Mendocino County, is in a very cool microclimate and divided into 9 blocks of Pinot Noir planted with DRC, 115, 777, Rochioli, 23, and 828 clones. It is sustainably farmed by our vineyard team, led by longtime Castello Vineyard Manager David Bejar. Morning Dew Ranch was recently named one of the top 5 Pinot Noir vineyards in Anderson Valley by Wine Enthusiast Magazine.
Food Pairing Notes
This elegant dry rosé pairs beautifully with light pasta dishes, shellfish, or sushi.
