Tasting Notes

The elegance of this estate-grown rosé is juxtaposed with its remarkable, vibrant rose petal hue. This rosé is light, bright, and playful from start to finish, with a nose boasting key lime notes, accompanied by hibiscus and strawberry elements. Red fruit and floral notes highlight the approachable complexity of this wine, as black cherry, strawberry, rose water and lime zest components dance on the palate. A respectable acidity adds backbone to this rosé, leading to a clean finish with generous length. Enjoy now until at least 2026.

Vineyard Notes

King Estate is situated on primarily two kinds of soil: Bellpine, a marine sedimentary soil formed when Oregon was under the sea more than 12 million years ago; and Jory, a volcanic soil created from lava flows that also date back millions of years. Both Bellpine and Jory soils provide good drainage with moderate water retention and are not especially fertile, unlike the lush Willamette Valley fields below. As it happens, the less fertile, well-draining soil is exactly what grapevines like.
