2015 Elouan Rose
"Elouan Rosé brings together fruit from three regions along Oregon’s Coast: Willamette, Umpqua, and Rogue Valleys, with the majority of the fruit coming from the warmest of the three valleys: Rogue. The diversity of these cool climate areas combined with a long growing season creates wine with intensity of fruit flavor, structure, and a fresh vibrant acidity. This is a bespoke rosé where grapes were grown and harvested with the specific intention of making rosé; and not a saignée rosé, which can be a by-product of making red wine. This wine should be enjoyed very well chilled. It is finished with a screwcap to preserve the crisp, clean aromas and tastes, and is a great choice for outdoor occasions: picnics, lunch on the patio, or enjoyed on its own as an aperitif.
COLOR: A gorgeous pale pink color with a copper hue.AROMAS: Ripe raspberry and strawberry aromas with hints of citrus.PALATE: On entry, bright acidity enlivens the palate with firm red berry fruit flavors combined with tart, dried apricot and concentrated minerality. The mid-palate is rich and expansive with fresh acidity that carries flavors of freeze-dried berries and clementine rind through the long-lasting finish." -Winery
