We are very excited to release to our very first sparkling! This Brut Rosé from the 2017 vintage is 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay, from two vineyards in the Willamette Valley. Both still wines were barrel fermented before the liqueur de tirage was added to produce a true Méthode Champenoise sparkling wine.
Salmon pink in color, the wine offers bright floral aromatics with pure notes of apricot and sharp green apple. In the mouth, it delivers an extra layer of raspberry while the fine bubbles burst into a creamy mouthfeel which leads to a refreshing finish. Perfectly balanced, this "spirited" sparkling rosé will be a great pairing for any celebration.
Only 80 cases, of the 500 produced in the 2017 vintage, were disgorged on September 23rd, 2019; so look out for future releases of this wine so you can taste for yourself how it will evolve with more extended lees contact.
