Illahe Vineyards 2017 Tempranillo Rosé

2017 was another great vintage in Oregon. We had a very cold winter which slowed things down a little in the Spring. But by Summer we were back to warmer than usual temperatures, similar to 2014, 15 and 16 (this seems to be a trend now). We had a few light showers in the Fall, but overall we were very happy with the quality of our fruit. Sugar and acid levels were perfect and we saw great flavor development. We are looking forward to seeing these wines develop in bottle for years to come. This fresh 2017 Illahe Tempranillo rose’ is reminiscent of a summer mountain scene. Aromas of wild strawberries and wildflowers come to the front of the glass. The tempranillo rosé is picked young and whole cluster pressed to preserve its light color and delicate dragon fruit and lemon zest aromas. A pleasant round mouth feel integrates nicely with notes of ripening peaches, rhubarb and bright acidity. 1275 cases produce. pH: 3.23 Titratable Acidity: 6.10g/L Residual Sugar: 4.25g/L. Vineyard Sources: 33% Illahe Vineyard, 33% Zenith Vineyard, 33% Freedom Hill Vineyard.
