Our Mom never really dug the pink wines of the seventies and eighties - all sugar and flab and being passed off as “White Zinfandel.” She had some friends from college who snuck back wine in their backpacks from Europe after a semester abroad. One of them popped open a bottle of pink wine from Alsace in the north of France. She expressed her reservations, but this was a good friend. A strong-willed woman who knew the truth - that a dry rosé is the ticket to paradise.
This year’s Oregon Rosé is made from hand picked Pinot Noir grapes grown in the prestigious Willamette Valley. The fruit was picked early, de-stemmed, and immediately loaded into the 7-ton press on a gentle setting. So this juice had 11-14 hours of “skin time” producing a light, elegant shade of pink. The resulting wine is quite dry and has quintessential pinot noir qualities with a nose of cherry blossoms and such a lovely texture on the mouth. Light hints of strawberry and floral tones in the mouth with great acidity. 13% ABV. Release Date July 1, 2017. Drink Now through 2019
