Vanda Pinot Noir Dry Rosé
Like the Vanda Orchid on the label, this delightful estate Pinot Noir Dry Rosé is light and beautiful. The crisp dry taste of this wine is indeed as pleasing to the palate as the bloom of the Vanda Orchid is to the eye. The rosé, when served chilled, is best enjoyed on a warm day with a gentle breeze while sitting in a rocking chair. A light lunch and afternoon sip will remind you of the feminine, romantic, and sensuous qualities that are the signature of the Willamette Valley Pinot Noir grape in this its most delicate style.
Vanda Pinot Noir Dry Rosé is produced from Dijon and Pommard clones from the Cherry Hill estate fruit located in the Eola Hills region of the Oregon Willamette Valley. We pick our fruit at 23 brix, and it is fermented in closed-topped stainless steel tanks. It is not aged in oak and the wine is fined and filtered. The wine is produced and packaged to cater to our lady friends and should be given much like a flower or jewelry.
Cherry Hill Winery is part of a group of winemakers and wine drinkers dedicated to righting the wrongs done to the dry rosé. Europeans down copious amounts of rosé but in the U.S. only a handful of sophisticated drinkers quaff this wonderful pink wine.
