Our 2015 Pike Road Rosé of Pinot Noir
The Pike Road 2015 is your quintessential dry Rosé of Pinot Noir
How we make our Rosé
Our Rosé is made of free run juice collected from hand-picked Pinot Noir grapes as they move through the processing line and fermented clear in stainless steel tanks until all the sugar has been converted into alcohol. The color is achieved by an addition of 2-3% Pinot Noir, giving us the ability to have consistent color year after year. Finished with a screw-cap for continuously fresh and available wine, ready for a day at the beach or a hearty holiday meal.
Pike Road Rosé is made from 100% Willamette Valley fruit. Sourced from six estate vineyard sites.
The 2015 Vintage
2015 was another warm year for Oregon’s Willamette Valley. The growing season started early with fine weather during bloom leading to larger than average fruit set. In spite of generous thinning, sunny summertime weather meant plentiful crops that were ready early. To avoid overripe fruit, harvest was compressed into a busy three-week period. Thankfully, cool nighttime temperatures ensured that we did not lose the classic freshness that is the hallmark of great Willamette Valley wine.
