Balleto Vineyards

Featuring by WineStopper today is Balletto Vineyards 2021 Rose of Pinot Noir. The team at Balletto Vineyard chose this bottle as it is a staff and customer favorite. The icing on the cake is that the Balletto’s 2021 Rose of Pinot Noir was awarded with 92 Points by Sunset Magazine, June 2022!

Here is what is in the bottle!

Appellation Russian River
Vineyard(s) Balletto Vineyards
Varietal Pinot Noir
Vintage 2021
Blend 100%
Fermentation 30% malolactic fermentation
Elevage 100% Stainless steel
Wine Notes The delicate, yet vibrant, coral color sets the tone for this lovely Rosé. Fresh tangerine and zingy lime mix equally with lush tropical fruits and savory undertones to produce this wildly drinkable and serious Rosé of Pinot Noir. The spot-on balance and texture take over with perfect acidity, weight, minerality and flavors to make you crave the next taste. It’s made exclusively from estate-grown Pinot Noir, a grape known for delicacy, light color and good acidity. It was cold fermented to complete dryness in 100% stainless steel to enhance its focus and harvested early to maintain acidity and lightness. To add weight and balance to the wine, 30% of the wine went through complete malolactic fermentation before blending in early January 2022.
Price $25.00

Thanks so much for the map. Heading down to Sonoma County for time along the Wine Road is our favorite get-away. Wineries are great, scenery is stunning. Perfecto!

Katie S. Eureka

We love to escape winter in Chicago and head to Sonoma County. We discover new wineries and make new friends. It seems we always start planning our next trip when we're on our way home!

Bob R. Chicago

Because of the podcasts that you and Marcy conduct, I am planning a trip to stay in Sonoma. Your descriptions and sense of fun make a slightly longer drive meaningful. Keep up the good work.
