Released in April, this fuller-bodied rosé is named for Franz Liszt’s “Symphonic Poem No. 3: Les Preludes.” It features equal parts Dijon clones 115 and 777 soaked on the skins for 24 hours, then pressed prior to fermentation—producing a fuller-bodied rosé. After fermentation, the wine was transferred to neutral French oak barrels for an additional malolactic ferment to smooth its acidity.
NOSE: Lush Oregon strawberry, summer bouquet and fresh earth.
PALATE: Tart strawberry balanced with rich apricot compote, and a rounded, long-lasting finish.
