Sparkletown - Oregon Sparkling White Wine There is a place where the music never ends. Where the stardust floats through the air and paints every surface. We never need an excuse to smile and be happy - but when we crack open a can of our Oregon Sparkling White Wine, we are immediately transported to Sparkletown.
Sparkletown is a sparkling Pinot Gris that shows great acidity and nuance. Pear, Apple, and hints of honeysuckle are the dominant characteristics on your palate. Completely dry on the finish. Not meant to be overly fancy and austere, Sparkletown eases the nerves and relaxes the mind. Enjoy it in the pool, on the beach, or in your bathtub.
Oregon Rosé We wanted our rose' to represent our commitment to making "wines of the south." In this case, the southwest Oregon. This delicious wine is certainly more representative of a rose' you might find in Cahors or thereabouts.
The rose' is 50% Malbec, and 50% Syrah grown in the incomparable Applegate Valley. The darker fruit of Malbec and Syrah produced a richer pink complexion, and the wine is less an exercise in austerity than last year - this wine is all about fruit.
The rose’ is 100% dry but the first thing you notice is the presence of a mouthful of bright fruit. The nose shows fresh picked strawberries with the stem still attached. Vibrant with a subtle floral tone. The palate is bright with characteristics of strawberries and watermelon sorbet. The acidity on the finish is 100% refreshment and makes you wish for just one more sip.
Oregon Red Wine When we were deciding on what kind of red wine to make and put in cans, there was I feeling we couldn't escape. We wanted to make a wine that screams "drink me!" During harvest, at the end of the day, we are drinking cans of lager. After a night of two or three Fort George 1811 Lagers, I had a flash. One of our favorite reds to drink at a BBQ is Côte-Rôtie. And thus began the idea of making an approachable table wine but in the style of that region.
The BBQ ready red will blow your mind with its character. Crack it open, do you smell the dark cherries in fields of lavender? A mouth full of plums, cherries and cranberries with some savory and spicy notes precedes a completely dry finish.
Oregon White Wine Our Mom loves to travel and remembers a time before we were born when she tripped away and took a road trip through the France. She would spend the afternoon under the shade of an olive tree in the field next to a vineyard she would stumble into - eating bread, cheese and olives, and drinking bottles of delicious white wine.
This year’s Oregon White blend is a Pinot Gris. Lovely light and dry. A nose full of flowers, pear and apple. Honeysuckle and pear on the pallet. Shows great fruit while finishing dry.
Grown at high elevation in the Rogue Valley of southern Oregon. The higher elevation allows for nighttime cool air to pass through which lends a positive influence by adding acidity, and character.
