Elk Cove Rose 2018
To make our Willamette Valley Pinot Noir, fruit from each vineyard block is fermented separately in small, temperature controlled steel tanks, hand punched down twice daily, and barreled in 20% new french oak barrels. After 10 months of aging in 20% new oak, the wine we choose for the Willamette Valley Pinot is carefully blended to produce the most approachable, well-balanced Pinot Noir we make.
Nose: Wafting peach-plum, rose and elderflowers.
Palate: An initial flash of green apple and sweet lemon leads to ripe strawberry and watermelon in this lightly-structured rosé.
Finish: Well-balanced rosé that has long spicy finish of nutmeg, earth and black pepper.
