    Winemaker Notes

    A festive strawberry pink, the Matchbook Rosé is an estate-bottled blend of three clones of Tempranillo enriched by small percentages of Rosés of Syrah, Tannat and Graciano—all grown on our Matchbook Vineyard. Fruit salad aromas of melon, strawberry and cantaloupe bring forth flavors of peach pit, cream and cola, with a lively acidity balancing out the fruit sweetness. Serve this Rosé well chilled, paired with poached ahi tuna, dates stuffed with almonds and blue cheese, or on its own as an early evening apéritif.

    Blend: 77% Rosé of Tempranillo, 14% Rosé of Syrah, 7% Rosé of Tannat, 2% Rosé of Graciano

    East of Napa, Left of Center: The Giguiere family embodies Dunnigan Hills winemaking. In 1981 they pioneered grape growing in this region when they planted their first vineyard. By 1993, they had succeeded in creating the Dunnigan Hills as a nationally recognized American appellation. The Matchbook flame is an homage to the Giguiere brothers’ youthful fascination with fire. Today, Matchbook Wine Company produces wines showcasing the varietals that perform best in their Northern California climate.

    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.
