Torii Mor Pinot Noir Rose 2017
The majority of fruit for the 2017 Rosé was sourced from Kraemer vineyard near Mt. Angel in the Willamette Valley AVA with a small amount
sourced from Dundee Hills and Chehalem Mtns. AVAs.
Growing season began with late bud break following another very wet
winter. Summer was hot and dry with record temperatures, with the exception of a cooler June. Like 2015 vineyard yields were on the higher side
forcing growers to do drop clusters in the vineyards.
Harvested September 27 at 19.6 brix, this Rosé was produced from 16 to
36 hours skin contact in Pinot Noir fermenters after destemming.
Inoculated with D47 yeast and fermented in small tanks for 25 days.
Total Acidity: 0.60 g/100 ml
Residual sugar: 0.3 g/100 ml
The 2017 Rosé has a beautiful, light pink color with aromas of flowers and
red berries. Flavors show a refreshing acidity with ripe strawberries-raspberries to juicy red cherries. Mouthfeel is bright and juicy with a long
and bright red-fruited finish.
