Description

Winemaker Notes: Light rose in color, Raeburn Russian River Valley Rose9 begins with light floral and raspberry aromas. The palate is marked with lush flavors of strawberry and guava followed with a luxurious yet light finish.Vinification: Pinot Noir, Zinfandel and Grenache were carefully selected throughout Russian River Valley's premier vineyards. Once the grapes arrived at the winery, our winemaker crafted the grapes in the Provene7al style: direct to press with minimal skin contact to provide a light salmon hue. We cold rested the juice on the lees prior to fermentation to release the delicate flavor compounds, then quickly followed by fermentation in 100% stainless steel to preserve the essence of the fruit to create a beautifully balanced, crisp and refreshing Rose9.Vintage Notes: 2020 was a challenging year in the Russian River Valley. The wildfires in and around Sonoma County pushed our winemaking team to continue to be resilient and delivered beautifully crafted and well-balanced wines. A dry winter was followed by a dry and warm spring with moderate temperatures that yielded a long and even growing season. A hot summer pushed the vines to deliver a small berry set, low yield and an early harvest. The grapes were harvested in late August and showcase depth, balanced flavors and a beautiful delicate rose9 color.

Producer Description

The name Raeburn, traces its origins to Olde English, and translates to "the stream where one drinks."The Russian River Valley is a unique sliver of the world that produces Chardonnay of class and distinction. At Raeburn we see a synergistic relationship between the land that yields beautiful Chardonnay fruit and its caretakers. We see our role as stewards of a distinct land that rewards us with high quality fruit. The Russian River Valley's watershed provides a unique habitat for flora and fauna, including Coho salmon, Steelhead trout, herons, egrets and deer.These creatures thrive under the same temperate, marine-influenced conditions that create exceptionally flavorful Chardonnay grapes. The flora and fauna have woven themselves into the same fabric of terroir that we look to in producing outstanding Chardonnay. Our goal is to protect and enable both vineyards and their inhabitants to thrive.

NOTES OF

SCENT & FLAVOR

COLOR

Deep colour, almost opaque.

NOSE

Aroma of excellent complexity, with wild bush and spicy notes like curry, pepper and ginger, red berries and black fruits mixed with a light cacao touch, the result of a good maturation, along with a slightly stony finish.

PALATE

On the palate it has a powerful attack, with a lively acidity, firm and well present tannins, wild bush and red berry notes, with an extremely long finish and great concentration.

“Thanks to the characteristics and potential of the vineyards at Quinta do Seixo, it was possible to cut through the strong maturations of this year's harvest. As a result, we produced very balanced and robust wines, with aromatic notes typical of more mature years.” - Luís Sottomayor, head of Sogrape's winemaking

ORIGINS

Quinta do Seixo Vintage is a unique expression of this renowned estate, where a combination of soil, slope inclination, sun exposure and reduced amount of available water contribute to the production of intense and complex wines.The 100-year-old vines producing Port create wines full of intensity, character and freshness.
