The 2022 Space Age Rosé shows a stunningly brilliant super-pale salmon color and comes to us from Josh Phelps, owner of Grounded Wine Co. Favored by premier rosé producers in southern France’s Provence region, it is a testament to their gentle winemaking techniques. The wine shows focused, clean aromas and flavors, featuring strawberry and Bing cherry. On the finish, the fruit continues to express acidity and tantalizing flavors of fresh cherry and watermelon.
Vintner Josh Phelps works with a small number of select growers in the Santa Barbara and Monterey regions to provide their Grenache fruit. With their help, they focus on well-established vineyard blocks that can provide the bright, exciting freshness and mouthfeel to produce this wine. A native of St. Helena, Josh grew up in a wine family with his father, Chris Phelps producing wine for some of the most revered wineries in Napa Valley including Dominus, Caymus, and Swanson Vineyards.
