2019 Querencia Brut Rosé (1 x 750 ml)

Sold Out
Querencia is a Brut Rosé produced solely from fruit grown in the Napa Valley Carneros region. Chardonnay forms the blends core, providing a relatively light-bodied, crisp and tangy palate. Small additions of Pinot Noir fermented with skin contact add berry brightness and color.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of Querencia contribute to the Jack L. Davies Napa Valley Agricultural Land Preservation Fund, which supports future agricultural preservation and education efforts in Napa County. Established by the Davies family in 1998 upon the passing of Schramsberg founder Jack Davies, the fund builds on his 30-year legacy as a strong advocate for the preservation of agricultural land. Jack played an instrumental role in the establishment of the Napa Valley Agricultural Preserve in 1968, which has become a national model for the protection of agriculture. The preserve celebrated its 50th anniversary in 2018.

The wine was named by James Hickey, long-time Napa County planning director. The name is a Spanish word meaning the deep and abiding affection one has for the place one calls home. It refers to the sense of being nourished by the place in which you belong, and the balance that exists between the land and its stewards. Our Querencia Brut Rosé is hearty enough to compliment the robust flavors of shrimp ceviche, grilled halibut, roast chicken, braised pork loin, caprese salad and sushi.

The 2019 growing season started off with lots of winter rain and cold temperatures. Mild conditions continued throughout the summer with an occasional heat wave allowing the grapes to ripen slowly and evenly. The 2019 vintage was both a high-quality and large yielding vintage, with balanced acidity and superb flavors.

Tasting notes

The 2019 Querencia blooms with aromas of red apple, tangerine, nectarine, melon, raspberry, and apricot, interlaced with subtle notes of sugar cookie, puff pastry, and vanilla wafer. The palate sustains bright, juicy flavors of citrus, hibiscus, lemon-lime, strawberry-rhubarb, and cherry, which are complemented with a bouquet of lychee, candied peach, marzipan, and graham cracker, all leading to a quenching finish.- Winemakers Sean Thompson, Jessica Koga and Hugh Davies
