The 2015 vintage was the warmest vintage on record in Oregon. Luminous Hills is a higher elevation and late ripening site which excels in this type of vintage, allowing for prolonged hang time without elevated sugars or depleted acidity. Additionally, this rosé benefits from being drawn from parcels in the vineyard that are farmed specifically to become rosé (leaving wings on clusters and less leaf-pulling around clusters, but otherwise maintaining the same crop load as the rest of the vineyard, optimized for the vintage). In this case we set aside blocks of 667, 777, and Pommard for this wine. These are picked separately, macerated for 3 to 4 days at extremely cold temperatures, then pressed off into neutral French oak barrels where it is fermented and aged for eight months producing a highly complex and rich, but still delicate and vibrant rosé.
