J. K. Carriere “Glass” Rosé
2016, Willamette Valley, Oregon
For our July featured wine, we selected a quintessential patio wine, J. K. Carriere's Willamette Valley White Pinot Noir. This dry rosé of 100% Pinot Noir was whole cluster pressed and barrel fermented to an absolute dry using a long, slow, low-temperature, wild-yeast regimen. Noted by the winemaker as having a "shiny copper peach" glow, a sip brings notes of peach bellini, melon and 'Nilla wafer to the nose with crisp lime and grapefruit flavors on the palate.
Dry rosé pairs wonderfully with rich, cheesy dishes, such as our gourmet pizzas.
