2016 Zinfandel Rosé

The 2016 Horsehill Vineyards Zinfandel Rosé is made from 100% zinfandel grapes grown in the vineyards at Cal Poly Pomona that were hand-harvested on September 12, 2016 by students and faculty of the Don B. Huntley College of Agriculture. The bulk of the grapes came from the Huntley Vineyard on the northeast portion of campus.

The grapes were lightly pressed to capture a vibrant pink color, all the while extracting the delicate cherry and strawberry fruit characters that give zinfandel its signature personality. The beautiful color is accentuated with a crisp finish and balanced with just a kiss of fruitiness - certainly an invitation for that second and third sip. This wine pairs perfectly with ceviche, pizza or barbecued chicken.

The zinfandel rosé earned a Gold Medal award at the 2017 Los Angeles International Wine Competition. The annual event showcases the finest domestic and international vintages and is widely considered one of the most prestigious in the country. This year, 3,002 wines were received from 990 producers in 17 countries, and 661 submissions received Gold Medals.

Horsehill Vineyards 2016 Zinfandel Rosé is available for $14.13 a bottle and $169.52 a case at the Farm Store at Kellogg Ranch
