House Wine

the girl & the fig 2014 Rosé

Central Coast



The Grenache is picked specifically for our rosé production. The grapes are crushed and immediately pressed in to stainless tanks for a long, cold fermentation. The wine is blended with co-ferments of Counoise, Cinsaut and Mourvèdre that are saingéed. Saignée is a winemaking process where we “bleed” off a portion of slightly pink juice from a red must right after crush. The juice is then filtered and bottled early, to capture brightness and vibrancy.


Color: Very light coral, salmon and pink.


Aroma: Bursting with aromas of framboise, tangerine and citrus notes – some creamy luscious elements.


Tasting Notes: Perfect for a summer day; dry, crisp, on the palate, this wine has plenty of natural acidity which ensures a crisp, long finish.


Food Pairing: This wine is very versatile and would complement so many dishes, however, we think it would be particularly lovely sipped alongside a rich, gooey grilled cheese sandwich, a savory quiche, or charcuterie platter. A patio table with a view also highly recommended!
