60% Pinot Noir, 15% Pinot Meunier, 25% Pinot Blanc from the Van Duzer Corridor, Willamette Valley, OR. Certified LIVE Sustainable.
ABOUT: Left Coast is guided by two defining principles: a passion for making world-class wine from all Estate fruit and a deep connection to the land where we live and farm. Each bottle is crafted to represent the unique terroir of our 490-acre estate. Our focus on terroir aligns with sustainable farming practices to preserve the integrity of our land for future generations.
SUSTAINABILITY: Our vineyards and winery are certified sustainable through LIVE, an independent, third-party certification that looks at all of the inputs into the land to ensure that they are in line with the latest university research and internationally accredited standards. We maintain over 200 acres of ecological compensation areas, of which over 100 acres are old growth white oak forests.Our oldest oaks are up to 450 years old and are the most threatened habitat in the Willamette Valley. We’ve partnered with the US Department of Fish & Wildlife to restore these forests by removing invasive species and bringing them under long-term care and conservation. Our visitors and guests have enjoyed the transformation of the Estate as USA Today voted us as Oregon’s Top Tasting Room of 2017 and most recently voted top 100 Best fan-favorite destinations in Oregon 2019.
VINIFICATION: 100% Aged in Neutral French Oak barrels for 6 months, & 100% of the wine underwent malolactic fermentation.
TASTING NOTES: This Pale Pink, nearly Copper hued Rosé tempts with aromas of Pear-accented Rainier Cherry, Raspberry, Rhubarb, Rosehip & Tobacco. Its crisp mid-palate is loaded with Cherry and Orange Tea flavors, w/ Raspberry, Strawberry and Banana notes, w/ bright acidity and creamy texture all in one. Long expressive dry finish. Pairs well with Sunshine and Good Friends.
FOOD PAIRING: This Rosé of Pinot Noir pairs beautifully with almost anything. Perfect for hot weather drinking we suggest a Light Salad or Pasta and Rice Based dishes combined with Seafood. Fresh Goat Cheese adds a delightful garnish that accentuates the Creamy character of this Rosé.
