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 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 2014 Vintage
2014 is already considered a classic Oregon vintage. A long, warm growing season and a relaxed, bountiful harvest has given us Pinot Noir with lovely color, beautiful fruit-forward character, excellent balance and the structure to age well. It is a perfect way to debut Roserock.

Véronique’s Tasting Notes
Our 2014 Roserock Pinot Noir has a lovely, deep red color. The nose is floral, spicy and beautiful, with an intense, savory, character. On the palate, there are notes of dark berry preserves, a touch of caramel, black cherry, dried flowers, and tilled earth. There is clear structure and balance, with good mouth weight and a long finish. I expect that we will be enjoying this wine for 7-10 years, or more, but it offers a lot now.

Drouhin Oregon Roserock Eola-Amity Hills Chardonnay

Fruit Source: Roserock Vineyard, Drouhin Family Estate
AVA: Eola-Amity Hills
Sustainable Certification: LIVE

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.
