2015 Rainstorm Silver Linings Pinot Noir Rosé, Willamette Valley
Here in the Northwest, we have a deep-seated love for Pinots, so we jumped at the chance to craft a Pinot Noir rosé. Sure, it rains a lot in Oregon, but we’re the type of people to see the silver lining with each rainy day. That cool rain is what makes Oregon Pinots shine, and it inspired the name of the newest addition to our Pinot family.
To craft our wonderfully balanced Rainstorm Silver Linings Pinot Noir Rosé, we select the finest grapes from the Willamette Valley. With its cool, mild climate, the Willamette Valley of northern Oregon produces Pinot Noir with an earthy, elegant style and complex yet subtle flavors. Sixty-five percent of the grapes were direct press for this rosé, providing acidity and elegance. Thirty-five percent came from the saignée Pinot Noir tank, providing more fruit and some structure. The wine was fermented with native yeast to dryness at cold temperature (50°F) and on fine lees for three months. We designed our winemaking to craft a light, pale, and refreshing rosé.
Our Pinot Noir rosé portrays aromas of strawberry, rose petals, and pomegranate seeds. It is completely dry with refreshing acidity. Silver Linings pairs beautifully with a wide range of foods, such as a spring salad, a goat cheese tart, or grilled chicken with fresh herbs.
