    Winemaker Notes

    Santa Lucia Highlands is notable for its cooling fog and the afternoon breezes that sweep from Monterey Bay across the vineyards. Soil is Arroyo Seco Sandy Loam. This wine is produced from some of the most renowned vineyards in the appellation, including Rosella's Vineyard, which is owned and farmed by Gary and Rosella Franscioni. The growing season here is one of the longest in California, allowing for full flavor development on the vine. In the winery, whole cluster Pinot Noir was gently pressed upon arrival at the winery. Fermentation in a combination of neutral oak vessels and stainless steel fermenters was followed by gravity racking to tank.The 2015 Bravium Santa Lucia Highlands Rose of Pinot Noir possesses a classic pink salmon color and very bright berry, tree fruit, and yeast-derived aromatic notes. Fresh and lively fruit flavors include peach pie with a creamy texture. This smooth and lightly textured wine is precise and persistent on the mid-palate and is balanced by crisp acidity and a clean, pleasing finish.

    Created by winemaker Derek Rohlffs, Bravium is the culmination of meticulous care in the vineyards and a patient approach in the cellar. Derek takes his cues from tradition. He doesn’t alter what the earth gives him. He’s a classic minimalist.

    But don’t mistake minimalism for apathy. Quietly guiding a wine in a thoughtful, deliberate way—without intervening at every twist and turn—requires diligent attention to detail and a generous amount of restraint. The wine in the glass is born of a deeply purposeful approach. It is a gift of the land, valued and honored.

    Derek grows Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes in coveted cool-climate vineyards in Sonoma’s Russian River Valley and Mendocino’s Anderson Valley.

    Derek’s minimalist approach translates the nuances of each coastal vineyard in the glass, illustrating a distinct, transparent sense of place in every sip. The result is a collection of compelling, terroir-driven wines that pair naturally with food and have rare aging potential, relative to their Chardonnay and Pinot Noir peers.

    Perhaps the most highly regarded appellation within Monterey County, Santa Lucia Highlands AVA benefits from a combination of warm morning sunshine and brisk afternoon breezes, allowing grapes to ripen slowly and fully. The result is concentrated, flavorful wines that retain their natural acidity. Wineries here do not shy away from innovation, and place a high priority on sustainable viticultural practices.

    The climatic conditions here are perfectly suited to the production of ripe, rich Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. These Burgundian varieties dominate an overwhelming percentage of plantings, though growers have also found success with Syrah, Riesling and Pinot Gris.

    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. 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 depends on grape variety and winemaking style, ranging from pale salmon to deep magenta.
