Several years back, MacRostie established a winery within our winery here at MacRostie. We called it Clockwise—a name that captures many of the elements that are important to us from a winemaking perspective, including timing, wisdom and knowledge. Just like at MacRostie, the winemaking for Clockwise is guided by Winemaker Heidi Bridenhagen and winemaking icon Steve MacRostie. In 2020 we worked with Cabernet Sauvignon that came into the winery with flavors and aromatics just craving to become a rosé. Unable to resist the temptation, we withdrew a small volume (350 gallons) of juice from the Cabernet Sauvignon fermentation to create our first-ever Clockwise Rosé of Cabernet Sauvignon.
