Keller Estate allocates specific Pinot blocks to the Estate Rose, instead of ‘bleeding’ some of the Pinot juice from the tank as a by-product of standard red wine fermentation, known as the saignée method, Julien employed a whole cluster press, just as he does for the Estate Pinot Noir. Once the grapes were crushed, Julien allowed only 3 hours of skin contact before racking the juice by separating the skins.

The 2022 Rosé of Pinot Noir, as most Keller Estate wines, is of a lighter, more terroir-driven style. The wine is clean, approachable, low in alcohol, and acidity-driven, but the resulting fruit speaks of warm summer days and gentle breezes. Notes of tangerine, orange zest and a dash of apricot produces a crisp freshness, soft tannins, and a burst of Pinot Noir fruit.
