Our Brut Rosé is made by combining traditional and modern winemaking techniques. The grapes for this wine are harvested early in the season to achieve vibrant aromatics, low alcohol, and wickedly high acid - all hallmarks of traditional sparkling wine. Things take a contemporary turn when the fruit is divided into two batches; one is whole cluster pressed while the other is destemmed and allowed to soak for 2 days before pressing. The pale pink and dark pink juice fractions are then combined and fermented in French oak barrels and egg shape vessels. The last modern twist happens when the bubbles are infused into the wine during bottling, and the wine is transformed into a luscious effervescent libation.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Light salmon in color. The bead is rapid and profuse with persistent lacing around the edge. The nose is clean and lightly perfumed, with bright notes of rosebud and cranberry. The palate is dry and delicately balanced between acidity and sweetness, while the bubbles are showing an eruptive attitude. The backpalate has a touch of texture and the finish is crisp and clean.
Vintage Notes
The 2022 vintage was a rollercoaster of a season. The season began with a frost event that affected many parts of the Willamette Valley. Our Estate was spared on account of our later than average budburst date, but most feared the lost of their entire crop. Ample spring rains followed and contributed to bountiful yields across the Valley. We were then graced with one of the the longest seasons in the last decade, one that lasted well into October with sunshine and 80F days. It was an astonishing vintage and a winemaker’s dream.
