Gorgeous vivid pink color, aromas of hood strawberries, a touch of rose water and a subtle minerality compose the nose. Crisp bright stone fruit dominates the palate with a hint of watermelon, while the constant undertone of strawberries continuous throughout the experience. Good complexity, possessing a power and grace that translates to a lively clean finish.
2017 True Story Rosé
100% Pinot Noir
Sourced from some of the highest vines in the Willamette Valley
Dijon 777, 114, 115
The only way to describe the summer preceding the 2017 harvest was hot. Record setting temperatures were certainly nerve racking but fortunately had no adverse effects on our fruit. With only one rainstorm to speak of conditions were idylic for both the grapes and our harvest teams.
A brief cold soak followed by a gentle press started the process. Gravity carried the wine to a stainless steel tank within the temperature regulated fermentation room. A slow controlled process resulted in a wine ready for bottling after four months.
