2022 Stoller Pinot Noir Rosé

TASTING NOTES FROM WINEMAKER, KARL WEICHOLD
Being a cornerstone of our production for over a decade, the aromatics of our Pinot Noir Rosé consistently leap with grapefruit zest and orange peel. A bracing acidity is flirtatious with juicy strawberry and lime. That electric vibrancy buzzes as the wine fades into white tea and delicate florals. Enjoy this easy drinker chilled on a warm day with your favorite people. Drink now through 2024.
The 2022 growing season was full of surprises that resulted in a miracle harvest of delicious, age-worthy wines with balance and vibrancy. The vintage kicked off with a cold and wet spring that turned worrisome when an unusually late-season freeze event affected lower-lying sections of the vineyard. Slowly but surely, temperatures began to warm by mid-May and continued to rise throughout the summer allowing the vines to flourish. Harvest commenced on September 13, almost four weeks behind recent vintages. Fortunately, moderate temperatures and clear skies facilitated a steady intake of fruit until finished on October 21.
