Tasting Notes

Noble Vines 515 Vine Select Rosé is made in a dry traditional style, showcasing a bright bouquet of raspberry, watermelon and Meyer lemon. Medium bodied, with a rich mid-palate, this snappy wine has a lively start with flavors of grapefruit and strawberry, then cherry, culminating in a fresh creamy finish.

Beyond the Numbers

515 Rosé celebrates the enchanted time of 5:15 pm, so named by our winemakers for the time they occasionally pause from their work to enjoy a taste of this bright, delightful Rosé.

Grown in windy valleys along California’s sunny Central Coast, Noble Vines 515 Rosé is a traditional composition of Grenache layered with Syrah and other aromatic varieties. Widely used in Provence, France, Grenache offers flavors of cherries and blueberries, with spicy notes, and extra body and richness. We chose Grenache vine selections that have shown of excellent concentration and acidity every vintage. Syrah adds red cherry and herbal flavors and aromas, while the aromatic varieties enliven the bouquet.

Winemaking

This Provence style Rosé is made mostly from red varieties in which the natural pigments of the skins impart elegant color and structure. The grapes were farmed specifically for Rosé, and harvested early to preserve bright acidity and complex flavors. In our winery, adjacent to our primary vineyard, the grapes were gently pressed and the juice was cold settled before being racked into stainless steel fermenters. We chose yeast strains specifically selected to enhance the fruit character in Rosé, and fermented at cool temperatures to preserve the lively aromas, flavors and texture.
