Roserock Chardonnay Eola-Amity Hills, USA 2019
VINTAGE : 2019
COUNTRY : USA
REGION/APPELLATION : Oregon, Willamette Valley, Eola-Amity
VARIETALS : Chardonnay
Roserock is an extraordinary vineyard at the southern tip of the Eola-Amity Hills, in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Ancient volcanic soils, an ideal elevation range and the unique cooling effect of the Van Duzer corridor produce classic cool-climate Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
The 2019 Vintage
In 2019 we saw a return to the classic, ever changing Oregon growing season. Winter started out relatively mild, but gradually became largely cold and wet. Spring was warmer but also wet, and
despite some mild frosts in April, there were also warmer than average temperatures.
Through the summer, there were fewer heat spikes, and then cooler skies for harvest.
Véronique Drouhins Tasting Notes
The 2019 Roserock Chardonnay is a gorgeous expression of vineyard and vintage. The light yellow color is striking, and the aromatics of green apple, lemon tart, and light vanilla are immediate and magnetic. It begins as generous and round on the palate, then turns more focused with lingering stony elements and precise acidity. Medi- um-bodied, there is a touch of toasted cedar and a delightfully long finish. Enjoy now or over the next 7-10 years.
