Raptor Ridge Rosé
Raptor Ridge makes a distinctive style of pinot noir rose, marked by single vineyard selection and extended skin-contact. We harvest a one-acre block of Pommard clone early from Bellevue Cross vineyard in McMinnville, and allow the fruit to rest on skins for 48 hours, giving the final product its rich cherry-hues and rounded texture. The juice is then racked off to stainless steel, and guided through a slow fermentation. The resulting wine is dry, deeply fruity, and suitable for any number of food pairings, such as roast chicken, or moules frites.
