Vineyard:

We are the second oldest vineyard in the McMinnville AVA. McMinnville AVA is known for having intense, enduring wines. Some of our top soils were brought here over 15,000 years ago in the Missoula floods, which makes this area incredibly unique. We have the perfect climate for growing Pinot grapes because we are located in the rain-shadow of the Coastal Foothills, visited by frequent winds that form from the Van Duzer corridor, and planted on western facing sloped hillsides. All of these come together to result in unique wines of quality and distinction, grown 100% from our Estate.

Vintage:

No two years are alike, especially in Oregon wine country, this is part of what keeps the winemakers and growers of the Willamette Valley enthralled with the challenge of each unique vintage. 2017 started slow with a cool and wet spring, resulting in a late budbreak and flowering. A dry and hot summer amplified red fruit and tropical characteristics in our expressive Rosé of Pinot Noir.

Winemaking:

Grapes were hand-picked from the coolest site on our estate, then quickly delivered to the crush pad where they were meticulously hand sorted, de-stemmed and pressed soon after. Juice was settled overnight, and then racked and inoculated. Slow, cool fermentation of Pinot Noir juice encourages a full bouquet to accompany rich texture. The finished wine was kept cold during aging to prevent malo-lactic conversion, which helps to retain a brightness in this delicate yet luscious rosé.
