REVIEWS

Founder's Rosé is a Killer End-of-the-Season Sipper
Bright and fresh, with lively tones of red and pink fruits, the Westfall's C'est Bon is brand new on the market. As it is, we are the only ones who get to sell, and you our audience are the only ones who get to drink it. I'll be taking at least a few bottles to show off - we here at the inVino office hand-picked the grapes last year, and I'm keen to show off the fruits of our labor (pun intended?). 

Strawberry and rose petals on the nose. Guava juice, red currant, honeysuckle and melon sit on the palate with a light body and crisp acidity. It finishes smooth, with a dash of cream popping out of the fruit. Drinking now through 2020. 93 Points - JZ July '18

2017 will be remembered as the vintage of the wildfires. And while it was a difficult time, we were fortunate to have picked all our Grenache one week before the destructive fired raged through the area.  The fruit moved to the hands of Randy Bennett, whose artful touch, made for one elegantly, traditional and refreshingly dry sipper. A real grand homage to Provence.

Things to Know:

Produced from our third harvest of Grenache, it does a pretty great job of showing that this region not only makes for an ideal spot for this Old World grape, but that it's perfectly suited for Rosé.

With Randy's artful touch, and some micro-lot Syrah, the end result is a wine that (elegantly) screams, traditional, refreshingly dry sipper. It's a real grand homage to Provence.

TASTING NOTES 

Delicate with zippy acidity, this wine drinks supple and moreish. A delightful French-inspired rosé, it shows pale raspberry pink in the glass with appealing soft berry aromas, flavours of fresh summer fruits and a crisp finish.

THE STORY TO KNOW

From the Winery:

Our relationships to growers and vintners put us in a prime position to take advantage of all that Sonoma County offers. In the case of this particular wine—our inaugural Malbec, made from 100% Sonoma County fruit—that means hiring winemaker Randall Watkins (winner of Sonoma County’s Winemaker of the Year) and in the vineyard working with Ned Hill (of Parmalee Hill and Durell Vineyards fame). 

PERFECT PAIRINGS

From Anchovies to Carpaccio and Gazpacho and Goat cheese to prawns and (not too spicy) Satay, this is a perfect wine to drink with food or alone.
