Obsession California Rosé 2019

Overview

Obsession Rosé aromas are abundant with tantalizing strawberries, white peaches and white flowers. The flavors continue with watermelon, honeysuckle and strawberries that are mouth filling, rich and full of a juiciness that finishes with good crisp acidity.

Wine Facts

About
Chenin Blanc vineyards, located in the Alta Mesa sub AVA of Lodi are at the base of rolling hills of the Sierra Foothills with clay loam soils and a slightly warmer climate. The Zinfandel Rosé comes from older sandy soils in the Jahant sub AVA and is known for being a cooler and windier climate. Symphony is grown south of Lodi in a warmer climate bringing intense fruit flavors. The winery practices sustainable viticulture practices such as crop reduction, leaf removal, organic materials and drip irrigation to improve the quality and intensity of flavors. Cover crops, which attract beneficial insects, are also employed as well as owl boxes and wood duck boxes to help preserve the surrounding habitats.

Sustainability
Although practicing “sustainability” in the vineyards for over 35 years, they were officially certified in 2018 and 2019 through the California Sustainable Viticulture Certification. Crop reduction, leaf removal, organic materials and drip irrigation for water management have all been used throughout our vineyards. Additionally, cover crops which attract beneficial insects, as well as owl and wood duck boxes placed around the vineyards and ponds help preserve the surrounding habitats.

Cocktail Ideas
Obsession Rosé is an amazing aperitif and a party sipper! Ideal with soft cheeses, such as brie and even smoked gouda. A summer veggie skewer from the BBQ or baked chicken, roasted salmon and a crispy duck confit are also lovely pairings.
