New Release: Lot 881 2021 Central Coast Rosé

Lovely salmon-pink hue. Candied peaches and crushed stone minerality. Bright, clean, and juicy, showcasing delicate red berry fruit flavors, watermelon, guava, and a gravelly minerality. This is the rosé you want on hand for grilled or pan-seared fish dishes, savory salads with dried fruit and nuts, or a bevy of fresh-cut herbs.

We love to make rosé wine from California’s Central Coast for one reason—the weather. Vineyards planted from Monterey down to Santa Barbara are treated to refreshing, cool Pacific Ocean breezes, which means that while grapes ripen under the warm California sun, those cooling breezes slow the ripening down, leading to incredibly fresh, natural acidities in the grapes.

One sip of this Lot 881, 2021 Central Coast Rosé, and you’ll see what we mean. Crafted in the lean, dry style of rosé wine from France’s Provence region, the vibrant natural acidity of this Pinot Noir and Grenache blend delivers mouthwatering freshness with a firm backbone of acidity.
