Just in case you haven't been reading our newsletters these past years, you are missing out on one of the great "up and comers" in Paso Robles. Nestled in the rolling hills on the "Westside" of Paso, Halter Ranch's sustainably-farmed vineyards have provided fruit to some of the more prominent names in the area...but they are now keeping more of the fruit for themselves. In fact, SoCal native Kevin Sass has become their winemaker after proving his skills at Justin for the past decade!
Roses from California are more and more popular every year. Producers are finally giving attention to these wines, and some of them rival the best from France! Halter Ranch is one of those quality Rose producers, and the proof is in the requests we get for this wine every year. The new release has landed, and it is every bit as good as previous renditions!
Reminiscent of Roses from the Southern Rhone, this Grenache-based blend has aromas of wild strawberry and guava. Refreshing on the palate, this wine features aromas of wild strawberry, watermelon and guava. On the palate, the flavors are a blend of tropical fruits and fresh citrus, with a bright and crisp minerality. Delicious on its own, this wine also pairs well with prosciutto and melon, salmon and light pasta dishes.
