Our Thoughts

The Pinot noir grapes were hand-picked in the Russian River Valley and brought into the winery on August 31st, 2017. The grapes were mostly de-stemmed with partial whole cluster co-fermented in two separate lots based on the vineyard blocks. We chose clones 667 and 459 for their elegance and pretty aromatics. After a quick two week fermentation, we pressed off the juice to five neutral oak barrels and aged it for 9 months before bottling.

  • Bottling: july 23, 2018

  • Production: 83 Cases

  • harvest date: October 3, 2017

  • Release Date: October 1, 2018

  • Varietal: 100% grenache

  • Appellation: CHALK HILL, Russian River Valley

  • PROPERTY: WINDSOR OAKS VINEYARD

  • County: Sonoma


Our Thoughts

The Grenache grapes were brought in to the winery on a chilly late-September morning. We fermented 50% of the grapes carbonically (meaning we took the whole clusters, put them by hand into a tank, and sealed up the tank to allow the juice to ferment inside the whole berries). Out of the other half, we de-stemmed 50% and left the other 50% whole cluster before co-fermenting. After fermentation, we pressed off the carbonic lot into two barrels. We pressed off the other lot into one puncheon (roughly the size of two barrels). It aged in neutral oak for 7 months before bottling.

Our Thoughts

Fresh, crisp and lively are our favorite words to describe Paper Planes rosé. We source our grapes from select growers in the Russian River Valley, where the cool climate allows our vineyards to ripen slowly to achieve excellent balance and bright crisp flavors.

2018 was a long and cool growing season, that allowed us to produce a perfectly delicate rosé. It also marks our fifth anniversary - an exciting achievement for our little passion project! This year we especially love the flavors of fresh raspberries, meyer lemon and wet stone.

Thank you for supporting our community of small producers and allowing us to do what we love. Cheers!
