The wild roses of the Applegate Valley are beautiful shades that vary from ruby to light pink. Much like the Syrah vineyard at Walport Family Cellars, these roses thrive in plenty of sunlight near creek banks and at the forest edge. Wild Rose is a wine with an exceptional expression of our local terroir, the boldness of flavor and structure of the Syrah varietal and the hand selected clusters used to achieve the truest version of a Syrah Rosé. The beautiful color was produced by resting the juice on the grape skins for approximately 2 hours, and by ending the fermentation process early we were able to achieve a delightful trace sweetness provided by the natural sugars from the grapes. With tantalizing fruit flavors and aromas along with a crisp acidity it is everything a Rosé should be; vibrant, refreshing and a pleasure to drink and enjoy.
