About Ultraviolet Wines Sparkling Rosé
Ultraviolet Wines Sparkling Rosé is an homage to the California climate where winemaker Samantha Sheehan grew
up – it is a pure expression of fruit ripened under the California sun. Her rosé is refreshing, zesty, and highly sippable, made only with organically farmed grapes and a small amount of sulfur.
This wine is 100% Pinot Noir from the Manchester Ridge vineyard on Mendocino Ridge. ManchesterRidge sits at a 2,000-foot elevation above Anderson Valley, 400 feet above the fog line. These grapes have a longer hang time, allowing them to develop complex flavors and nuances. The cool, steady temperatures also allow the grapes to maintain acidity.
The finished base wine is added to stainless steel pressurized tanks and then inoculated for secondary fermentation. The sparkling fermentation takes 6 weeks to complete charmant method fermentation at 48 degrees. Samantha then allows it to age on the lees in the tank for 8 weeks before bottling.

Just recently she added a sparkling rosé to the lineup. Both wines are made in an artisanal manner, without any additives other than a judicious amount of sulfur.
