2018 rose

The Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir grapes used in this blend came from 20 and 30 year old vines, respectively, grown at an elevation of 650 feet. Old vines lend a natural balance to the wine. These two varietals were co-fermented together to increase complexity and balance.

Tasting notes:

The 2018 Rose from Vitae Springs Vineyard, in the South Salem Hills area of the Willamette Valley, opens softly with a rolling, delicate mouthfeel and lively acidity. It grows into an amiable assortment of fresh flowers, pear, apricot, and other stone fruits. 100% dry. The aromatics fully blossom over a subtle, yet telling smile.

Harvest notes:

Picked on September 24 at a sugar concentration of 21.2 degrees Brix & an acidity of 3.33 pH. The bins of grapes were foot-treaded in order to help extract more flavor & color from the skin. The primary fermentation completed within about 3 weeks, and the temperature stayed effectively between 60-65 degrees. Cooler fermentation temperatures allow for more delicate, yet high-toned aromatics to develop. The secondary (malolactic) fermentation was encouraged to finish in order to soften the acidity and broaden the palate. It was aged on the lees until bottling.
