These 100% hand-harvested, estate wines show the true expression of the Casablanca Valley. This collaborative project between Brazos and Grupo Belen began with the idea to showcase the unique terroir of the Casablanca Valley. The valley produces vibrant and fresh wines due to the coastal, cool nature of the vineyards. The estate consists of multiple vineyards including some of the original plantings in Casablanca by Pablo Morande in 1982. The cool misty nights, hot sunny days, and light hand of the winemaker act as a prism to convert the grape into a complex and beautiful wine. The winemaker is Jorge Martinez and the farming is certified sustainable.
Prisma Rose of Pinot Noir comes from 14-year-old vineyards in Casablanca Valley at 1,000 feet of altitude. The fruit is destemmed and fermented in stainless steel tanks after a 2 hour maceration to just add a slight pink color to the wine.
This rose shows notes of fresh citrus, crushed stone, passion fruit, grapefruit rind, and watermelon on the nose. The palate is high toned with bright acid, red fruit, and peach flavors that lead to a mouthwatering finish. Passion fruit and pink grapefruit, crushed wet rock backbone and watermelon juice notes.
