About Our Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noir
Our Roserock Pinot Noir is a cuvée selection from the estate’s 35 blocks, which are handpicked, sorted and individually fermented.

While Pinot Noirs from the Eola-Amity Hills are typically known for their structure and power, Véronique Drouhin emphasizes Roserock’s
elegant and refined qualities, making for a delicious and ageworthy cuvée.

The 2015 Vintage
The warm, long growing season of 2015 brought us a second straight harvest of exceptional quality. Looking back, a warmer than average winter led to an early budbreak and nearly six months of charmed growing conditions. Just before harvest, the vineyards were able to enjoy some needed rain, but the skies were largely clear. As temperatures cooled, we were offered a welcome opportunity to pick as each block reached its perfect moment. Ripeness and flavor found their natural balance providing a second stunning vintage.

Véronique’s Tasting Notes
Capturing the eye, charming the nose and enchanting the palate, the 2015 Roserock Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noir has a velvety approach and focused structure. Balanced and long on the palate, the elegance shines through many layers of flavors. This is a wine that will be delicious young but that has a bright future.

About Our Zéphirine Pinot Noir
Our Zéphirine Pinot Noir is a barrel selection cuvée from the Roserock vineyard, and is a reference expression of the site. Zéphirine conveys purity and beauty, reflects winemaker Véronique Drouhin’s dedication to elegance and finesse, and will age meaningfully for years to come. The name refers to the Zéphirine Drouhin variety of climbing rose, which is known for its fragrance and beauty.

Véronique’s Tasting Notes
The 2015 Zéphirine convinces you immediately with its dark ruby color and abundant aromatics. Violets, fresh strawberries, cacao, cannelle and a touch of vanilla essence emerge from of the glass. Zéphirine has impressive complexity, defined structure and super length. I trust this wine can be enjoyed for at least 7-10 years, if not more.

About Drouhin Oregon Roserock
Roserock is an extraordinary vineyard at the southern tip of the Eola-Amity Hills, in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Ancient volcanic soils, an ideal elevation range and the unique cooling effect of the Van Duzer corridor produce classic cool-climate Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Roserock is LIVE-certified sustainable

About Our Eola-Amity Hills Chardonnay
Our Roserock Chardonnay brings together the estate’s three Chardonnay blocks, which are handpicked and sorted. The Chardonnay is pressed immediately, and sent in equal parts to tank and barrel. Once malolactic fermentation is complete, Véronique assembles the two portions into her final cuvée.

The 2015 Vintage
The warm, long growing season of 2015 brought us a second straight harvest of exceptional quality. Looking back, a warmer than average winter led to an early budbreak and nearly six months of charmed growing conditions. Just before harvest, the vineyards were able to enjoy some needed rain, but the skies were largely clear. As temperatures cooled, we were offered a welcome opportunity to pick Roserock’s three Chardonnay blocks as each reached its perfect moment. Ripeness and flavor found their natural balance, and the result is a second stunning vintage in a row.

Véronique’s Tasting Notes
The 2015 Roserock Chardonnay leads with clean, fresh aromas of apple, honeydew, white flowers, shortcake and a touch of nuttiness. On the palate, the wine is generous and round, with flavors of citrus tart, white peach, almonds, and spice with a delicious combination of minerality and richness. The finish is long. Enjoy the wine through 2020.
