Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir
Rosato / Rose
This Rosé was made using a combination of whole cluster press and saignée method. The wine was fermented with cultured yeasts in 100% stainless steel tanks, which were temperature controlled to maximize fruit character. Aging took place over two months in stainless steel tanks.
During 2019, Oregon experienced a mild winter and early spring. The growing season was marked by a combination of warm weather and heavy precipitation in late June and early July. Steady rains in September and cool weather in October made for a challenging harvest, especially when trying to determine when to pick. But the silver lining of the late season rains meant that Oregon had far fewer wildfires in 2019 than previous years. From a winemaking perspective, the cooler vintage means this rosé has more nuanced aromas that would have been obscured by alcohol in a warmer year.
