2019-C Stoller Pinot Noir Rose, Willamette Valley, Oregon (750ml)
A Seasonal Rosé Wine Club Selection
This Pinot Noir Rosé has a pale pink hue with salmon ﬂecks. The aromatics and palate show tart wild strawberry with a hint of mint and sage. This is a very refreshing wine that exhibits generous fruit and mouthwatering acidity.
Stoller Family Estate is one of Oregon’s most highly-regarded vineyards and wineries. Pioneering Oregonian and founder Bill Stoller purchased his family’s second-generation farm in 1993, focused on cultivating an enduring legacy for his family’s land. Over the last 20+ years, he has transformed the 373-acre property into the largest contiguous vineyard in the Dundee Hills and established his vineyard as a premier source of high-quality fruit. Winemaker Melissa Burr works in concert with vineyard manager Robert Schultz to oversee the site’s continued reﬁnement. The vineyard is divided into 101 meticulously-farmed sections at elevations ranging from 220 to 640 feet. The property features seven planted varieties: Pinot Noir (63%), Chardonnay (28%), Pinot Gris, Riesling, Tempranillo, Syrah, and Pinot Blanc.
Stoller Family Estate boasts a warmer microclimate relative to other areas of the Willamette Valley due to the surrounding mountains. This allows for a more consistent ripening. To continue to elevate the quality of the wines, Stoller combines sustainable farming practices, innovative techniques, and scientiﬁc research. Stoller is LIVE (Low Impact Viticulture and Enology) and Salmon Safe certiﬁed. Solar-powered weather stations provide up-to-the-minute data during harvest and an electrostatic sprayer is used to minimize drift. The vineyard irrigation system is fed by a rain pond and wells on the property. Stoller Family Estate is the ﬁrst LEED® Gold certiﬁed winery in the North America. The building blends traditional gravity-ﬂow winemaking with energy-efﬁcient systems to reduce the environmental impact, and harvests 100% of its energy through a 236-panel solar panel installation.
Pinot Noir Rosé has been a cornerstone of Stoller Family Estate’s production for more than a decade. Comprised of various clones of Pinot Noir, Melissa intentionally crafts this Rosé to be balanced and bright. It is whole-cluster pressed and fermented in stainless steel.
