2022 Prelude

Estate Vineyard ∞ Chehalem Mountains AVA Rosé of Pinot Noir

108 cases. $30  

Named for Franz Liszt’s “Symphonic Poem No. 3: Les Preludes” and sourced from the Bells Up vineyard, this is the newest edition of our fuller-bodied rosé. A harmonious blend of heritage clone Pommard (40%) and Dijon clones 113 (40%) and 667 (20%) soaked on skins for 44 hours, then lightly pressed prior to fermentation. The wine then underwent a malolactic ferment to smooth its acidity, yielding a full-bodied, highly complex and savory Rosé with balanced acid and fruit.


NOSE: Watermelon, Hazelnut Shell, Strawberry Blossom. 

PALATE: Watermelon, Bright Cherry, Strawberry, Nougat, Full-Bodied and Well-Balanced Acid with a Long Finish.

James Melendez/James the Wine Guy: Field strawberry as well as a very nice savory center of microgreens, a hint of fennel, as well as a mineral notation and fresh white flowers. A dry wine with a very nice initial characterization of mountain strawberry, very minute hint of spicing, as well as an ascending character of briny, compacted seashells and floral notation. This wine is 93 points out of 100 points.
