Producing Rose of Malbec is a joy. The whole cluster pressed without crushing and limited skin contact time keeps Malbec's penchant for ample color in check leading to a salmon-colored Rose. This wine is sourced from a particular vigorous section of Star Lane Vineyards Malbec which promotes higher acidity and is perfect for Rose. The wine was produced simply, in stainless steel fermenters, and did undergo secondary fermentation to balance the higher acid at harvest.
The first decade of Jim and Mary Dierberg's California wine adventure was spent searching for the ideal location to plant a vineyard and start a new winery. In 1996, driving upon the former dude and cattle ranch - Star Lane Ranch, Mary Dierberg recalled: "We immediately knew that we wanted this amazing ranch". With wisdom from patience, a 250 year plan, the certainty of passion, and some of the best consultants in the business, the Dierbergs planted Star Lane Vineyard with Bordeaux varietals, based on their confidence in those grapes' ability to soar in this unique microclimate. The family subsequently added two cool climate vineyards represented by the DIERBERG wines; creating a collection of superb estates within three distinct AVAs of Santa Barbara County's winegrowing region.Planted to 200 acres of Bordelaise varieties, the vineyard differentiates itself from other parts of Santa Barbara County by sustaining warmth. Furthermore, with vineyard elevations ranging from 750 to 1550 feet above sea level, microclimates emerge within the site to produce a beautiful and diverse palette that helps create a distinct range of estate fruit. The Dierberg family's pioneering spirit was quickly rewarded, showing that Cabernet can succeed in Santa Barbara County.
