2023 Stoller Pinot Noir Rosé
TASTING NOTES FROM THE WINEMAKER
A cornerstone of our production for over a decade, our 2023 Pinot Noir Rosé is fresh, juicy, and vibrant. Aromatics of strawberry and orange peel spring from the glass. A bright, zingy line of acidity buzzes across the palate as the wine fades into delicate notes of white tea and spring flowers. Drink now through 2025.
The 2023 vintage will be remembered as a year of abundance, with harmonious grapevine development for all growing regions in the Northwest. As winter transitioned into spring, temperatures remained relatively cool, delaying bud break into late May. The weather pattern then shifted to moderately warm and dry, creating excellent conditions for an accelerated bloom that led to perfect pollination and abundant fruit set. Our vineyards ripened in the final two to three weeks of September, creating a condensed window for optimum harvest, a challenge our vineyard and winemaking teams are fully equipped to handle. Thanks to the remarkable summer and fall weather, yields were greater than average and exceeded our own estimates. The wines crafted from the 2023 vintage display excellent quality demonstrated by generous flavors and complex textures.
