2015 Brut Rosé: Sparkling Wines That Rival Champagne

Our 2015 Brut Rosé featured in Food & Wine Magazine’s article “8 Oregon Sparkling Wines That Rival Champagne”. Here’s what they had to say:

“The Willamette Valley’s distinctive climate and geology have made it renowned for Pinot Noir, and its Chardonnays can be equally impressive—two varieties that also happen to be the classic ingredients of great sparkling wine… Winemaker Adam Campbell is one of Oregon’s top Pinot talents. His skill shows through in this creamy, lightly toasty wine.” – Ray Isle, Food & Wine

2015 Brut Rosé: Year’s Best Summer Sparklers

Our 2015 Brut Rosé was awarded 92 points by  Wine & Spirits Magazine and was featured in their “Year’s Best Summer Sparklers.”

“This is Elk Cove’s second vintage of a sparkling rosé, made with fruit from some of the oldest vines on the property. It starts off with a soft and elegant mousse and a whiff of lees and plum juice. The flavors are juicy and linear, with plenty of acidity to balance the fruit. It’s ripe and seductive, with a mildly earthy finish.” – Patrick J. Comiskey
