Our Rosé is a pure expression of how our Bell Mountain Vineyard can express rich fruit and palate cleansing acidity at the same time. The Bell Mountain Rosé is a blend of saignée that is captured during the pressing of our red wine blocks where quick skin contact allows for a gentle color extraction. The freshness is captured by fermenting cold in stainless steel and bottled soon after to capture the vibrancy and fresh fruit flavors.  

The 2022 Bell Mountain Rosé is an elegant pink blush colored wine with an abundance of pink grapefruit, raspberry and candied orange aromas. Green apple, mandarin, blood orange and kiwi fill the juicy and zesty palate making this is fun and easy summer aperitif.   

Vintage 

The 2022 vintage hit records in so many ways. We had several rounds of severe frost including in areas where we normally don’t see frost. We had our latest frost on record during the middle of May which caused a significant crop loss. Nevertheless, we had high hopes for the vintage as we got closer to fall. During September we endured a record heat wave in which we had more than 8 days above 100 degrees with one day topping out at 119 degrees. Thankfully our canopies faired this weather well. 2022 is overdelivering on aromatic intensity, full flavor and gentle tannins. Everything ripened a little earlier and we finished off the season with the smallest and earliest harvest on record, though we think perhaps some of the tastiest.
