Winemaker Notes

Strawberry and citrus notes, more refreshing than a cold lemonade on a hot summer day.

WW 91

COMMENTARY: If you have traveled to France recently, you may have noticed more Bordeaux pink wines on the shelves. Rosés—now a global phenomenon—is finding good partners with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot grapes in more places than Bordeaux. The 2017 Brander is a nifty rosé. TASTING NOTES: This wine is clean, refreshing, and crisp. Its aromas and flavors of red cherries and dried herbs make it a beautiful wine with a salad of roast chicken, cherry tomatoes, and Bibb lettuce. (Tasted: August 3, 2018, San Francisco, CA)

The Brander Vineyard, California
Image of winery
The planting of the Brander Vineyard to mainly Bordeaux varietals began in 1975. In 1977, the first harvest of Sauvignon Blanc grapes were taken to a neighboring winery where Fred Brander produced a wine so distinctive it captured Santa Barbara County's first gold medal for a wine at a major wine competition (1978 Los Angeles County Fair).Since its inception, the Brander vineyard has been highly acclaimed as a top Sauvignon Blanc producer, and for many years the only Brander wine was an estate-bottled Sauvignon Blanc. Today, the winery produces an average of 8,000 cases of wine from its 43 acres of vineyard in the Santa Ynez Valley. The focus on production is Sauvignon Blanc, with one main bottling and three distinctively different reserve bottlings of that variety. A small quantity of red wines is also produced with Merlot and our Bordeaux-blend called Bouchet being the most popular.

Whether it’s playful and fun or savory and serious, most rosé today is not your grandmother’s White Zinfandel, though that category remains strong. Pink wine has recently become quite trendy, and this time around it’s commonly quite dry. It is produced throughout the world from a vast array of grape varieties, but the most successful sources are California, southern France (particularly Provence), and parts of Spain and Italy.

Since the pigment in red wines comes from keeping fermenting juice in contact with the grape skins for an extended period, it follows that a pink wine can be made using just a brief period of skin contact—usually just a couple of days. The resulting color will depend on the grape variety and the winemaking style, ranging from pale salmon to deep magenta. These wines are typically fresh and fruity, fermented at cool temperatures in stainless steel to preserve the primary aromas and flavors. Most rosé, with a few notable exceptions, should be drunk rather young, within a few years of the vintage.
