2017 Rain Dance Estate Grand Oak Vineyard Chehalem Mountains Rosé

14.1% alc., pH 3.36, TA 0.653, 50 cases, RS 0.83 g/L, $22, screw cap. Released May 5, 2018. Harvest Brix 22.3. 100% Dijon clone 114. Whole cluster pressed with no skin soaking. Cold fermented. Aged in neutral French oak barrels. · Delicate orange color in the glass. Aromas of blood orange, yellow apple, peach and fragrant melon. Slightly creamy in the mouth and reminding of Orange Julius (which I always loved). A lighter styled but flavorful wine that has a savory floral note as well in the background. A terrific table wine that has a very dry, thirst quenching finish. Score: 91. Reviewed June 9, 2018
