2021 Elementus Oregon Rosé
This delightful wine from Oregon is bright, fruitful and refreshing.
Country: United States
About This Wine:
Sunset is approaching along the Oregon coast. It has been another unusually hot summer day — hot for this part of the Beaver State, anyway. Normally, it would be time to uncork a bottle of Willamette Valley Pinot Noir. But on this day, the weather calls for a chilled wine — a bottle of Oregon Rosé.
While the state isn’t famous (yet) for its Rosé-style wines, more and more vintners are embracing the style. Why? Because visitors to their tasting rooms are asking for it. Nothing beats a fruitful, refreshing Rosé when the weather is warm.
But as the 2021 Elementus deliciously demonstrates, enjoying an Oregon Rosé need not be restricted to the summertime. It’s an all-season wine, whether simply for sipping or for serving with fish (salmon is a sublime pairing partner) or white-meat dishes that are lightly sauced. Pour a glass of Elementus Oregon Rosé and toast the season — whatever season it may be.
