Estate Vineyard ∞ Chehalem Mountains AVA Rosé of Pinot Noir
~100 cases expected. $28 | PRE-ORDER
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 113 were soaked on skins for 40 hours, then lightly pressed prior to fermentation. Post-ferment, the wine was transferred to neutral French oak for a malolactic ferment to smooth its acidity, yielding a full-bodied, highly complex and savory Rosé with balanced acid and fruit.TECHNICAL NOTES
