The Merlot grapes were picked two weeks earlier than they would typically be harvested for red wine production. This wine is 100% Merlot, made in the Methode Champenoise tradition of whole cluster pressing. Blanc Rouge is made entirely in stainless steel and fermented at (65F), no malolactic secondary fermentation.
The aroma is of red Anjou pears and honeydew melon. This medium-light body wine has a slightly plush, soft finish with low acidity. It is a good sipping and easy drinking wine.
