This is our second year working with Tom and Linda Hesse’s Castaño Prado Vineyard and we are proud to have their Cinsault (sin-so), a rising star of the Texas wine world. Cinsault is a grape that lends itself to Rosé and also makes a red wine. What makes a Rosé a Rosé is the method in which the wine is made.  There are many methods to making a Rosé wine, ours is through 85% whole cluster pressing and 15% Saignée (sen-yee). Saignée is a technique that is derived from a red winemaking process and is also known as a by-product of red winemaking. Normally during fermentation a portion of the wine juice is drained off, leaving a large amount of skins in contact with the remaining juice. The portion that was drained off is what is called Saignée, which is then fermented to create a Rosé. This method actually creates some of the longest lasting Rosé wines.

Pale pink salmon-like hue with a light peachy tint, shows notes of bright red berries and cream. Fresh orange, strawberry, and raspberry are expressed on the palate with a soft, seductive mouthfeel that Cinsault gives so distinctly. Closing notes of peach skins muddled with fresh sage, leave an enticing impression. As a dry Rosé, this is a wine sure to please any palate.
