Made from our very best blocks of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, our vibrant and alluring Goldeneye Brut Rosé captures the rich diversity of our estate program, offering vivid layers of blood orange, honeydew and hazelnut flavors.

This tantalizing Brut Rosé beckons with enticing aromas of stone fruit, ripe raspberry, white gardenia and lemon curd. On the palate it is creamy and voluminous, with refreshing acidity and an effervescent mousse that frames lush layers of summer strawberry, juicy white peach and fresh-baked brioche, with a hint of candied lemon peel lingering on the long, shimmering finish.
The 2019 Anderson Valley growing season produced one of the most exceptional vintages in Goldeneye’s three-decade history. A dry winter and cool, wet spring delayed budbreak until the first week of April. This was followed by ideal temperate weather in late spring and summer, which ensured an excellent fruit set and veraison, as well as a long, measured growing season. After harvesting our first blocks of Pinot Noir on September 4th, the temperate weather continued into the autumn months, allowing us to pick every block at ideal phenological ripeness, with harvest concluding on October 15th. The length and quality of the growing season ensured that we had numerous beautiful lots to choose from when blending, resulting in wines with vibrant aromatics, bold textures and wonderful complexity and richness.
