The 2021 Summer-Salters Rosé is a serious showstopper. 50% Shake Ridge Ranch Mourvèdre and 50% Shake Ridge Ranch Primitivo meet in a blend of high fives and sunshine daydreams. The Mourvèdre brings the depth and texture, and the Primitivo delivers the balancing acidity.

2021 was an incredibly dry year in California. This resulted in ridiculously small yields of wildly intense and flavorful grapes. Though fruit quantities were microscopic, they produced profound wines. The aromatics of our 2021 wines are astronomical. The textures are luscious with balanced acidity. The finish on each wine goes all the way – stretching from your palate to cosmic dawn. This profile is grand, afternoon cumulus clouds, and post lightning ozone. You will find aromas and flavors of sishu mandarin, palo santo, rhubarb, and pine needle beach.  A lush and ornate palate with intense flavors that end in a hold-the-table finish, the 2021 Summer-Salters has serious undertow. This is indeed a”full plate” rosé. It will play with summer’s medley coming off the grill – from shellfish to portobello mushrooms to juicy ribeyes.
