2019 Josie Rose - Covington Cellars
Back by popular demand, the 2019 Josie Rosé is sourced entirely from Olsen Vineyard in the Yakima Valley. Named after one of our wine club members' daughter, Josie. At just 2 years old she painted Cindy a picture and presented it to her at the winery. Cindy loved it so much she told Josie she was going to make it into a wine label, and make the wine pink since it was her favorite color. Josie is now 13! and her masterpiece still lives on the label of this fantastic Rose. A blend of Cinsault and Grenache, chosen specifically for making Rose. We picked both varietals early to retain acidity and after gently destemming we pressed off the juice to tank. It was fermented in a combination of stainless steel and oak barrels, then aged for four months before bottling. Lively and expressive the bright red fruits and citrus flavors make this perfect for food and warmer weather.
