Exclusive winemaker's select edition of Grenache rosé.

Tasting notes
Ripe with caramelized mango, papaya, white tea and sweet rose water. Swirling adds
peach panna cotta and spun sugar. The palate is substantial with more stone fruit 
and floral top notes. Its bright and pithy but with more weight than most rosés.

Production notes

Made from the Tablas Creek clone and only the free run juice after being macerated for 15-24 hours. This was initially fermented in 50% new French oak 500L’s and was blended shortly after fermentation and then aged in only the used barrel. We extended the élevage to add texture and sweetness to this normally austere and intense wine. I like the way this wine is showing now that we’ve put together a dedicated Winemaker Select series of wines.

Gård Vintners is 100% estate grown sustainably at Lawrence Vineyards in the Royal Slope AVA. Lawrence Vineyards features seven distinct vineyard sites with elevations ranging 930 feet to 1,675 feet. The combination of elevation and south-facing slope provides a great framework for grape production, while the diversity of the seven locations delivers a high level of complexity to Gård wines. Lawrence Vineyards is certified sustainable by Vinewise.org.

Winemaker Aryn Morell, a Washington native, honed his skills in Napa Valley working with some of the country’s most notable producers, including Silver Oak, Joseph Phelps, Quintessa, Husic, Chimney Rock, Chappellet, Stags Leap and countless others in winemaking and the chemical engineering of wine as part of a consulting company for which he worked.

Aryn joined the Gard team as head winemaker in 2011, and spends considerable time in the winery’s estate vineyard with Josh Lawrence, Gard founder and viticulturist.  With an uncompromising attention to detail, Aryn carefully crafts Gard wines with an eye toward the unique expression of terroir of the estate vineyard, and earns frequent accolades and high acclaim for his wines.

In 2014, Aryn and Gard founders Josh and Lisa Lawrence launched a winemaking facility in Walla Walla, M&L Production, where all the Gård wines are produced, bottled and aged. Aryn also makes wine for Matthews Estate, Tenor, Alleromb and Mullan Road, a Washington project for Cakebread Cellars of California.
