An intentional field blend of varietals grown in warmer viticultural sites intended to express ripe fruit aromatics and flavors. This is a rich style but maintains the bright acidity and dryness that is a signature of 51Weeks Winemaking rosé. In the spirit of how our winery dog, Champ, greets visitors with a bâton, we suggest you welcome your guests with a glass of ‘Bâton de Champ’!
