SLO Down Wines Send Nudes Rose of Pinot Noir 2020
The 2020 vintage of Send Nudes Rosé is made from 100% Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir. The appearance is a beautiful sherbert pink. This Rosé bursts at the seams with spring strawberry, ripe peach, candy watermelon, and white grapefruit. It’ll remind you that showing skin is always in.
With a story so rich and expansive, it's far better to watch our video to get a sense of who we are and how we are wildly different from anyone else in the wine industry. But basically, in a nutshell, I started slo down wines in 2008 with 93 cases of sexual chocolate. Never could I imagine that I would be here telling you this story 7 years later with a wine that has blown up across the country and has also allowed me to release two new wines - broken dreams chardonnay and stand out cabernet/merlot blend. Slo down wines had a very humble start and we remain humble and grateful for all of our supporters out there who want to ditch the boring, stuffy, old rules that surround wine and just drink it for pure pleasure and fun. ~ Brandon Allen, Director of Important Stuff and Slutty Winemaker
A vast appellation covering Sonoma County’s Pacific coastline, the Sonoma Coast AVA runs all the way from the Mendocino County border, south to the San Pablo Bay. The region can actually be divided into two sections—the actual coastal vineyards, marked by marine soils, cool temperatures and saline ocean breezes—and the warmer, drier vineyards further inland, which are still heavily influenced by the Pacific but not quite with same intensity.
Contained within the appellation are the much smaller Fort Ross-Seaview and Petaluma Gap AVAs.
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.
