Gorgeous, Sustainably Produced Rosé

Born on a tiny island in British Columbia, Canada, Faith Armstrong Foster discovered her interest in winemaking by taking a position in wine promotion, marketing and sales in California. She eventually found her way to UC Davis, having earned a full Regents Scholarship, graduating with a degree in Viticulture and Enology with Highest Honors in 2006. After graduation, Faith began working for Frank Family Vineyards, where she was soon promoted to Assistant Winemaker.  A drive to work more closely with all aspects of the wine business coupled with the demands of a growing family (four children), both contributed to the decision to go into business for herself.

The Farmstrong Field Rosé is the result of an intentional rosé program, picked expressly for rosé and 100% whole cluster pressed. This blend is from two vineyard sites in northern Mendocino’s Redwood Valley: Carignane from the 80 year old vines in Hawkeye Ranch (50%), Zinfandel (50%) from 48 year old vine in KenMar Vineyard.

The Carignane and Zinfandel press juice was cold settled and then racked and combined as juice and a native fermentation was carried out, all as one lot.  After dryness the rosé was aged in neutral French oak and received lees stirring until the wines was bottled in the spring.

The fruit from both the Carignane and Zinfandel is balanced and beaming with bright flavors at lower sugars, allowing me to harvest at lower sugars and retain the lovely natural acidity, vibrant red fruits and floral notes. By gently pressing whole clusters, extraction is very delicate, allowing the fruit’s soft, pretty nature to shine through.

In describing her rosé, Faith says, “Loaded with vibrant lively fruits: ripe strawberries, honey tangerine, camellia blossom. This wine is inviting, happy, easy going and relaxing…like a walk in the park on a sunny day. I couldn’t be more thrilled with its purity and focus. She is pretty in pink…but not afraid to show her serious side.”
