Pale salmon, our 2022 Rose' of Pinot Noir is lightly aromatic with pomelo. The palate is bright citrus (starfruit, pink grapefruit, marmalade, and watermelon rind) with a light bodied delicate texture.
ABOUT THIS VINTAGE
The 2022 vintage was an interesting Oregon vintage that ranged widely from a cold frost in mid April to a warm finish in October. The early frost had varying effects on bud break dependent on variety and location. There was plenty of precipitation and very cool temperatures, but good bloom conditions and generous fruit set. We ultimately finished with good amounts of fruit, but small clusters and berries that ripened well in the unexpectedly warm fall temperatures in September and October. This led to good flavors, despite the delayed start, and the quickest picking window in the last five years.
ABOUT THIS WINE
Our 2022 Rose' of Pinot Noir is 100% estate fruit, composed of fruit from a mixture of Dijon clones from Maple Ranch Vineyard. The fruit was hand harvested in the beginning of October. Two lots from Maple Ranch were whole cluster pressed into tanks and drums. After settling for 48 hours, the juice was racked off solids and fermented at low temperatures.
