VINEYARD INFORMATION: The 2019 Holloran Rose comes from our ANA vineyard in the Dundee Hills. The vines were
planted in 1974 with the Pommard clone of Pinot Noir. They are own-rooted. ANA vineyard is farmed organic and biodynamic. These 45+ year old vines have deep roots, providing excellent complexity and an extended finish. They are located adjacent to our winery production facility. The soils are volcanic, Jory, a deep, ancient red silty clay loam. The elevation is 425’, with a south aspect. The vine spacing is 9 feet between rows, and 6 feet between plants. These beautiful old vines have very thick trunks, and are very healthy.
WINEMAKING INFORMATION: The 2019 growing season started off warmer than average. After significant rains in early summer, we experienced consistent temperatures through the summer with no significant heat spikes. September brought more rains, which encouraged an early harvest. We picked the Pinot Noir used to make this Rose early, then pressed gently and slowly to allow minimal color extraction. We then fermented in stainless steel, no ML.
