Limited Addition Whole Cluster Grenache Rosé 2019
Eola-Amity Hills, Willamette Valley, Oregon
Chad and Bree Stock MW are the powerhouse behind the limited production, additive-free, small farm wines of Limited Addition. What they make changes depending on the collaborations in any given year; inspired by the farmers responsible for Willamette’s diverse and sustainable wine landscape, and often working with grape varieties other than the mainstream of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Probably not the first variety that springs to mind for a cool-climate region like the Willamette, this Gigondas clone Grenache comes from the Eola Springs Vineyard. Harvested early, on October 14th before the arrival of Pacific ocean rain that marked the end of harvest 2019, these young vines presented a vibrant spice and aroma that inspired Chad and Bree to make a flavor-packed rosé rather than a light red. It was fermented whole cluster for 6 days before pressing and finishing ferment in old used barrels.
Taste & Experience
Give this a good chill - the fruit can take it! Straddling that comfortable zone between a fruity rosé and a very light red, it is quintessential picnic wine — perfect with snacks, crackers, even crisps and of course pizza!
