"Soil. Vines. Wines. This is the order in which great wine is made." This 2016 Rosé of Syrah from Ampelos Vineyard and Cellars is a firecracker of a wine with rich color and a complex profile to match! One third of the grape clusters were de-stemmed, crushed and cold soaked for 5 days, giving it a beautiful bold pink color, a red wine-like mouthfeel and light tannins. With minimal interference from the winemakers, Ampelos wines truly showcase the terroir from the Santa Ynez Valley.

Overall this Rosé has natural aromas and flavors produced by the Syrah grape with added depth and texture from a splash of Grenache and a touch of Riesling. Incredible bright acidity meets your nose and palate with tones of strawberry, pear and red fruit. Dry, crisp and smooth, the 2016 vintage will be one to remember.
