2018 Loop de Loop Nor’Wester Rosé

$20.00

The Vineyards: A blend of Pinot Noir from Oregon’s Eola-Amity Hills; Cabernet Franc from Washington’s Rattlesnake hills, this is a rosé of the Northwest. This is the Rosé version of our little Vin de Soif, Romeo Red. These wines were influenced by our trip to the Loire Valley a few summers back and all the charming bistro wines we found there.

Description

 

In the Cellar: Picked at separate times we only half-filled the barrels with the Cab Franc initially, and then blended the pinot, in barrel, for a co-fermented wine. Both varietals were only gently macerated and left on their skins for a short few hours before direct pressing. The wild yeasts that came in on the fruit from the vineyards kicked off a long, cool fermentation — which ensured preservation the fruit’s pretty aromatics. After 4 months, the fermentation was finally complete and we bottled at the end of March in 2019.

The Vintage:  the spring and summer were very dry and warm; however, we didn’t suffer from any serious heat spikes and a cool autumn extended the vintage. That allowed grapes to hang and develop complex flavors on the vine while retaining fresh acidity.
