I'm Anna Maria Knapp, owner of Celebrations Wine Club. We're located here at Bourassa Vineyards, beautiful Bourassa Vineyards and Winery in the Napa Valley. Our topic is, how to make Shiraz Rosé wine? What the Australians call Shiraz, we actually call Syrah. And Syrah or Shiraz is normally a rich, full bodied red wine. But it can be made as a Rosé as well. In fact, any red wine or any red grape could be made as a Rosé. Vic Bourassa, owner of Bourassa Vineyards and Winery, is going to show us how to make Shiraz Rosé, how to get that beautiful pink color and that crisp, delicious taste of Rosé. Today, we're going to talk a little bit about making Shiraz Rosé. Basically what we do, we take the grapes, we put them through the crusher destemmer. We let them sit in the bin for about two days, we press them off. Get all that beautiful juice and put it into a tank, like this one. Then, you inoculate it with the yeast. The yeast will actually clarify the color, it will be eating up the sugar, turning it into alcohol, but it'll also lighten up this wine. Then, we will filter it and it's going to be a beautiful hued pink wine with a gorgeous aroma. Um, that is beautiful Shiraz. Rosé is becoming a more and more popular wine these days. I'm Anna Maria Knapp, owner of Celebrations Wine Club.
