Pinot Noir Rosé

Firesteed Willamette Valley Pinot Noir Rosé

To create the Firesteed Pinot Noir Rosé, fruit from Firesteed's Erratic Oaks Vineyard was hand-harvested and de-stemmed without crushing.  Then, the grape skins were allowed to soak in the clear juice for up to 18 hours.  Now infused with a beautiful pink hue, juice from several blocks was assembled to create a balanced blend, that was then fermented in stainless steel tanks at cool temperatures, retaining the wine's generous ripe-fruit aromas.

The 2015 Firesteed Pinot Noir Rosé's crisp, intense aromas of wild strawberry and rose petals are nicely supported by the wine's expansive mouth feel and Classic-Rosé finish.  Though perfect for the warming weather, this exceptionally versatile wine is ready for any course, soup to nuts in every season.
