2019 Halcyon Blanc of Franc, Contra Costa
Known for only working with one grape, Cabernet Franc, Tyler and Kim Elwell from Halcyon decided to see what would happen if they pressed the grape direct off of the skins, and this is the result. Citrusy, herbal, pepper, and floral.
"100% Cabernet Franc from Contra Costa County. After years of extracting slight orange color for our rose, we decided to go rogue and just press the skins directly. Thus this wine, although made from red grapes, is white. It is hands-down the best 'rosé' we've made." - Winery
