2020 Bjornson Vineyard Argenta rosé
Empty bottle weight: 17.1 ounces / 486 grams
For owners Mark and Pattie Bjornson, their Willamette Valley winery and vineyard was only a dream while living in Minnesota. In 2005, Mark was able to relocate his job to Oregon so the couple and their four kids moved here in search of a vineyard site. It didn’t take long before they found just the right property, 107 acres in the Eola-Amity Hills. Coincidentally, the family had run out of gas very near the site during a previous tour of the area. Maybe fate was trying to intervene?! Either way, the Bjornsons got to work immediately and now have 28 acres planted in grapevines, along with a new winery, and a tasting room.
Made with 100% estate-grown Pinot noir, distinct minerality and fruit jumped out of my glass! Notes of flint and fresh rain combined with white grapefruit and strawberries to create mouthwatering wine aromas.
If your preferred rosé style is dry and leans toward high acidity, this is the wine for you! Tart citrus flavors of grapefruit, lemons, lemon zest, and pith dominated this rosé. Notes of strawberries added a lovely sweetness and weight, balancing all the tartness in this rosé. Culminating in a lingering spicy ginger finish, this wine will pair beautifully with a wide range of dishes.
Food pairing suggestions:
Sesame chicken salad // cheeseburgers // Massaman tofu curry
