The 2018 vintage in Washington state had near-perfect growing conditions from bud-break until the end of harvest. This exceptional harvest weather gave our Grenache grapes great flavors and balanced chemistry. Named for our oldest son, our intent with the Theron rose’ is to make a fresh, lightly colored, aromatic wine. To do so, we harvested the Grenache for our rosé pro- gram a month earlier than our red program. Following 25 hours skin contact, we pressed the beautiful pale pink juice to tank for fermentation. Careful to keep oxygen exposure to a minimum, we fermented and aged the wine in 100% stainless steel.
