Bryn Mawr Vineyards – Rosé of Pinot Noir and Pinot Blanc

bryn-mwar-webWe have two great summer wines to highlight for July, both from Oregon’s Bryn Mawr Vineyards.

Bryn Mawr Vineyards – Pinot Blanc

While Pinot Blanc, a white variety of Pinot Noir, is not widely grown in Oregon, the folks at Bryn Mawr felt they had the perfect conditions for it when they planted the vines back in 2010. It turns out they were correct, as Bryn Mawr really delivers with a grape typically associated with cooler European climates.

The wine makers tasting notes include “honey, ginger, rose water, pear flowers, and mandarin…”

The winemakers say their rosé is very “intentional”, that many other  rosés are simply leftovers from red wine making. Bryn Wawr pulls their rosé from the early stages of red wine fermentation.

The wine maker’s description includes “rich and creamy notes combine with fresh raspberry, strawberry, mandarin, and orange zest.”
