Reserve Rose 2020
Virginia Governor's Cup 2022 - Silver Medal Winner
With its wide range of vineyard sites, unique mix of grape varieties and each vintage having its own story to tell; Virginia is uniquely suited to produce compelling Rosé wines each & every year. Through attentive farming and hands off winemaking we achieve refreshing, transparent, fully flavored wines with moderate alcohol levels that are fun and interesting to drink. Pippin Hill's 2020 Reserve Rosé focuses on revealing delicate aromas of lemongrass and pomegranate all held in check by a refreshing wave of crisp acidity. Pressed after just a few hours of skin contact, this is a side of Malbec that few of us have seen before. And many of us will want to see again.
