Estate Vineyard ∞ Chehalem Mountains AVA Rosé of Pinot Noir

Sourced from the Bells Up vineyard, this fuller-bodied rosé is named for Franz Liszt’s “Symphonic Poem No. 3: Les Preludes.” Its equal parts heritage clone Pommard and Dijon clone 667 were soaked on skins for 24 hours, then pressed prior to fermentation. Post-ferment, the wine was transferred to neutral French oak for a malolactic ferment to smooth its acidity.TECHNICAL NOTES
