Sourced from the Chehalem Mts AVA and Laurelwood soils, the Sparkling Rose is a blend of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, and Chardonnay. Bright fresh watermelon on the nose, with strawberries and undercurrent of slate stone. Rich creamy strawberries burst all juicy onto the palate. The Rose has lovely acidity with a backbone hint of lemon rind and a strawberrry whipped cream finish. Really, it's like drinking strawberry shortcake - but with bubbles!
100% Estate Fruit, 90% old vine Pinot Noir and 10% 108 clone of Chardonnay, 2015 was the beginning of our sparkling program. The nose exudes biscuit, caramel, and rose petal. Entry of lively bubbles, strawberries and maraschino cherries – has a nice mid-palate of toasty shortbread and richer green apples and raspberries with a touch of sour cherry and a slight tannic interest. The finish is long and pleasant, with a hint of fresh grass, acidity, toasted pine nuts, and pink grapefruit.
Much of the 2017 fruit arrived in a rush – with the winery quickly becoming very full. Proper marital relations suggested that some of the fruit would have to wait – and wait it did. Given almost 10 extra days – as space in the winery opened up - this fruit ripened into the ultimate 2017 expression – big and ripe. This wine was barrel aged for 14 months in French Oak, 50% of it new.
