Clean fruity flavors and bright acidity, boasting floral aromas of rose and citrus, paving the way for its mouthwatering palate. Fruit flavors like strawberry and raspberry lead into a dry, crisp finish.

Winemaker Notes
The grapes used in our 2016 Rose were destemmed and very gently pressed immediately upon arrival at the winery. The color was only extracted during the short pressing process. The juice was racked off of solids before being inoculated with three different Rose specific yeasts to add to the complexity. We kept the fermentation cool to achieve our goal of retaining nice, clean fruity flavors and bright acidity. This 2016 Columbia Valley Rose boasts floral aromas of rose and citrus, paving the way for its mouthwatering palate. Fruit flavors like strawberry and raspberry lead into a dry, crisp finish.

Production Notes
2016 started out with above average temperatures reaching record heat in April. This jumpstarted our growing season and led us to an earlier bloom than in 2015. Cooler June and July months slowed things down, allowing us to catch up in the vineyard. Temperatures heated back up in August leading us to pick our Rose grapes from August 17th – September 7th, 2016.
