2017 Pinot Noir Rosé Willamette Valley
NEW RELEASE! More info soon…
The fruit for this all Pinot Noir Rosé is hand-harvested from select vineyard sites in the Willamette Valley. For the Rosé, we choose both young and old vines from higher elevation vineyards on their own rootstock. These give us the full flavor development and aromatics needed for a fresh white wine, within a framework of lower alcohol.
Pinot Noir fruit for our Rosé is hand-harvested and is a combination of both gently whole-bunch pressed fruit, and a traditional method of making a Rosé called saignée. Saignée is free run juice that is bled off early prior to fermentation of Pinot Noir, which we thoughtfully collect in order to make a delicately balanced Rosé. The pressed fruit and saignée is all fermented cool in stainless steel tanks, then carefully selected lots of fermented red Pinot Noir juice is blended back in for color and texture. Our Pinot Noir Rosé is finished completely dry.
