Wine.Woot purchases now bypass your cart entirely! This means you gotta buy Wine.Woot items on their own, using your Amazon Payments account. You can't mix 'em up with stuff from our other sites. This cowboy's ridin' solo.

Be aware that anything in your cart from the other Woot sites is still out there and looking forward to your return. We'd hate for anything to sell out while you're reading this.

Arizona Wine Dust

And by "dry" we mean "desiccated."

When people try our Arizona Dry Rosé, they expect a not-too-sweet, lightly-red wine. So they're often a bit confused with what ends up in their glass. You see, in traditional Arizonan winemaking the wine is "aged" in the sun for several days before bottling. What results is the finest wine-powder imaginable.

One mouthful of our Rosé will have you coughing uncontrollably in pleasure. It's got all the flavors you would associate with a traditional Rosé, without that unpleasant "moist" feeling so common in wines these days. Plus, you don't have to worry about spilling wine on your white shirt! Just brush it off and forget about it.

Some (*cough cough* Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms *cough cough*) would like to strip our product of the designation "wine." How small-minded! As though being in a liquid form is somehow essential to wine. Tell that to my winemaker friends up in the Yukon. If their Syrah ice pops are wrong, I don't want to be right!

2012 Arizona Stronghold Dayden Dry Rosé 750ml 6-Pack

A knock out dry rose that balances vibrant fruit with racy acidity. Offers zesty floral aromas of watermelon and spice, with layered strawberry and mineral flavors. Dayden, Apache for "little girl" was primarily crafted from the early picks of several red varietals grown in our high elevation, southerly vineyards. Lightly pressed and then fermented cold for nearly a month, the fresh aromatics of this dry rose jump out of the glass. Taste Arizona's landscape in every sip!

The Groundwork: The word Dayden in the Apache language means "little girl," this wine will always be a blend of grapes, although they may differ from vintage to vintage.  Dayden is all about subtlety and finesse, just like a little girl.

The Vintage: Harvest began in the first week of August, early compared to prior years. We experienced a hot and dry summer as well as early emergence in the Spring. The Summer rains were minimal and fruit ripening advanced quickly.  This extra heat led to many of the white varietals maturing early and at about the same time. After the rapid pace of harvesting all the whites, harvest settled into a steady rhythm allowing the Vineyard and Cellar to closely coordinate on picking each varietal and block at the optimal ripeness for their intended wine.

In mid September a period of about one week of rain delayed much of the harvest. This delay allowed the fruit to hang a little longer and develop more maturity prior to the harvest based on brix and acidity. Hang Time!  This rainy and cloudy period also provided a needed break to a harvest that began fast and furious. The 2012 harvest was a great opportunity for the Vineyard and Cellar to make coordinated choices to harvest a given block, this coordination led to the Cellar receiving the best fruit possible.
