2021 Cryptology Saignée

This refreshing dry Rosé is made from the same varietals as our infamous Cryptology red blend. In-keeping with the Cryptology tradition, the constituent varietals remain a closely guarded secret.

We produced the wine using the saignée method. Saignée, translated from the French means "to bleed." Early in the fermentation process, a small portion of each varietal is bled off from the main batch of wine. Since skin contact is relatively minimal and peak alcohol level has not yet developed, the resulting wine is lighter in color and lower in alcohol. We used the same technique for each varietal in the blend, then combined them in just the right proportions to create the very first vintage of Cryptology Saignée. We quite literally bled for you.

This delightfully subtle wine is both vibrant in color and soft on the palate. Hibiscus and jasmine aromas on the nose. White tea and guava notes give way to a wild cherry and dried pineapple finish. A lovely accompaniment to a romantic dinner. Pair with oysters, poached salmon or lobster. Enjoy a chilled glass with your favorite rom-com.  Share a bottle with that one special person who you would bleed for...
