2017 The Four Graces Rosé of Pinot, Dundee Hills
Our 2017 Rosé is a beautiful light pink color with a touch of rouge. Delicate aromas of Montmorency cherry, Meyer lemon and a hint of light crème fraiche sets the tone for the delightful rosé. The palate shows bright notes of ripe strawberry that lead into a soft minerality. A lively acidity accents the ripe fruit flavors and carries the wine into a crisp finish.
Food Pairing Notes
A perfect pairing for a light mushroom and goat cheese quiche.

4 months in used French Oak and stainless steel
The 2017 vintage began with a colder than average winter, with multiple snowstorms. Thankfully, Spring saw a return to normal with bud break taking place in April. As Summer approached, the classic warm days and cool nights made for ideal growing conditions without any major heat waves. During the harvest on September 25th, we received less than average rainfall, which allowed for nearly perfect harvesting conditions.
The fruit for this wine was sourced from the Foley Family Estate, Doe Ridge and select sites throughout the Willamette Valley AVA. The Foley Family Estate Vineyard encompasses 110 acres nestled in the Red Hills of Dundee. The Doe Ridge Estate, purchased and developed in 2005, is a 90-acre site and considered one of the most innovative new vineyards in the Willamette Valley.
