2014 Mourvèdre Rosé

Claim Jumper

El Dorado

A one-time only production, this 1 LITER bottle of Mourvèdre Rose is what would have been our 2014 The Prospector but in 2014 we made it in pink! The King Fire in El Dorado put red wine making at risk so deciding against the gamble we finally made Rosé from Mourvèdre and are really pleased we did!

A light and very cloudy salmon hue Rosé boasting sour tangerine notes that leap out of the glass. Slight musky notes laced with spice illustrate the character of this varietal. This is a generous Rosé that will deliver thirst quenching pleasure for the beach and picnic days ahead!
