Portlandia Rosé 2021
90 Points – Wine Enthusiast (Editors’ Choice).
A bright, vibrant rosé of Syrah with aromas of watermelon and raspberry followed by a hint of fresh lavender. Flavors of strawberry and pink grapefruit are well balanced by a lively, refreshing acidity that lingers on the finish. The berries were gently crushed and allowed to rest on the skins for several hours to capture its bright salmon color. Cool fermentation temperatures were used to protect the delicate aromas.
