“La La” is inspired by our home of California and the lack of reality, weird, amazing and unique nature of the city of Los Angeles (as well as some interesting urban meanings...). As rose should be: whimsical, fun and pleasurable, we wanted the fantasy name of our cuvee to embody just that.
“La La” is sourced from one vineyard in Los Alamos, within Santa Barbara County: “Black Oak." This vineyard is known to produce very savory and aromatic Grenache wines (usually reds). Los Alamos is one of the cooler sites within SBC. Sandy/loam/rocky soils and a higher elevation than most of the overall appellation yields superior quality wines from an under-appreciated, lesser known area that is striving for it’s own A.V.A. designation currently.
“La La” rose? is 100% Grenache. The grapes were harvested on September 30th. We went straight to the press and fermented in stainless tanks. The wine was aged sur lie for four months in tank and in bottle for two months.
