A few recent reviews of our Rose -
This was the letter that went out From Jay at the Tasting room a few weeks back when he tried the rose... It was super nice write up - Thanks again Jay!
This is what Darryl at Cork said -
Clare and Brian at Big Table Farm really have a good thing going. She draws the labels, he makes the wine, the two of them run a working farm in between all of the wine fun and they still find time and energy to run all over town tasting us folks in the trade on their latest creations. I'm not sure how they do it, but I sure am glad to be in on the latest releases.
This Pinot Noir Rosé really stands out from the current crowd of Oregon releases. A few winemakers are now turning to producing rosé from grapes picked just for this purpose, pressing them off and getting a lightness and aromatic quality that is making interesting wines. Others are doing saignée only, where they bleed the juice off of a red wine fermenter before there is too much time on the skins, resulting in the lighter color but giving a lot more body that you might want on, say, a 90 degree day. Brian has decided to combine both methods, using about 30% pressed Pinot grapes and the rest from saignée. He's also sourced the fruit from the Cattrall Vineyard, the first organically certified vineyard in Oregon with a long history of producing quality Pinot grapes.
The result is mouthwatering. Watermelon and cherry dance together and there's a hint of cotton candy in there, but the wine is in no way sweet. Just full of fruit and, served ice cold, a real refreshing way to kick off any party. Plus, with the laughing pig on the label, how can your guests not break out in a smile when you show them what they've been drinking.
As with all of the Big Table Farm wines, there production is tiny and supply is very limited. They made 100 cases of rosé and only a handful of places in Portland will get any, so if you like their wines, like their labels, need a great gift, love rosé and want to try it - any of these reasons, we suggest you hit the reply button quickly and secure some for yourself. We've got a case or so at each shop now and can reorder next week but after that, I have a feeling this will be gone.
