From the winemaker:
The 2014 Salem Wine Co. Rosé is sourced entirely from the Eola Spring Vineyard, a dryfarmed site in Oregon’s Eola-Amity Hills. Like Seven Springs, Eola Springs Vineyard is an historically significant site, first planted in 1972. Like Seven Springs, the vineyard sits above the Missoula flood plain’s vigorous sedimentary soils and shares the well-known volcanic jory soils of our estate vineyard. Vineyard manager Paul Futrell farms Eola Springs sustainably.
The Salem Wine Co. wines are crafted to be approachable and authentic, consumed in their youth, with very little sulfur and no new cooperage employed. The 2014 Rosé of Pinot Noir is a rosé of intent. Initiated with gentle, whole cluster pressing, the juice is racked to fully neutral French oak barrels for a brief 7-month élevage. The wine was vinified and raised with no additions, save a sulfur adjustment at bottling.
