About Drouhin Oregon Roserock

    • 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.
    • Roserock is LIVE-certified sustainable

About Our Eola-Amity Hills Chardonnay

    • Our Roserock Chardonnay brings together the estate’s three Chardonnay blocks, which are handpicked and sorted.
    • The Chardonnay is pressed immediately, and sent in equal parts to tank and barrel.
    • Once malolactic fermentation is complete, Véronique assembles the two portions into her final cuvée.

The 2021 Vintage

    • Winter was slightly warmer than average, and drought conditions continued across the west.
    • February was defined by an ice-storm unlike anything seen in the Willamette Valley for 40 years.
    • The growing season started out cool and dry, with frosts in April and an early heat event in May.
    • June had the warmest days ever recorded in the Valley, but the vines remained healthy.
    • Despite the dramatic growing season, the grapes produced had complex flavors, balance, and elegance, which was a great gift for winemakers and grape growers.

Véronique’s Tasting Notes

    • The 2021 Roserock Chardonnay is defined by balance and precision, two trademark characteristics of this Eola-Amity Hills vineyard.
    • A layered bouquet includes fragrant gardenia and perfumed honeysuckle, while acidity and nuanced stone fruit flavors energize the palate.
    • Subtle minerality adds depth and refinement. 
    • It is another classic expression of the site.
