Julia’s Dazzle Rosé was developed by Allen Shoup and named after his granddaughter Julia. Winemaker Gilles Nicault crafts this limited production Rosé having developed his winemaking skills in Provence, France, the world leader in Rosé.
Fresh and lively with bright aromas and flavors of orange blossoms, strawberries and ripe melon complemented by a racy acidity that lingers across a clean finish.
This wine dazzles, with Mirabelle plum, white peach, powdered sugar and citrus aromas, plus hints of white sage. Crisp acidity backs tangy pink grapefruit and pink lemonade flavors. The highlight is the herbal flavor reminiscent of lemon-basil granita with honey.
This is a downright stunning wine which was created entirely from Pinot Gris gapes, the 2022 Julia’s Dazzle is a gorgeous Rosé bottling that checks in with just a dash of residual sugar. Don’t serve too cold to experience the complete range of flavors, combining Satsuma orange zest, guava puree, red rose water, juicy strawberry and shades of baking spice dusted French bread. This is impeccably balanced in terms of weight and bright minerality. Highly nuanced, enjoy now and over the next five plus years.
Made from all Pinot Gris grapes that were left to hang on the vine until they developed that classic gray-pink tint, and then gently pressed into this gorgeous light pink Rosé. One of the most interesting of all Rosés being produced out of Washington State. Boastful aromas and flavors of fresh mango, white peach candy, withe flower petals and touches of grated ginger are all present. The wonderful mouthfeel and lemony acidity complete the wine.
Part of the Long Shadows lineup, this popular rosé comes in a distinctive bowling pin-shaped bottle. Pinot Gris when left awhile on the skins imparts a natural blush color, which is unusual for a white wine grape. This is all you could wish for in a springtime sipper – it's fruity, forward, crisp, clean and lovely to look at.
This is an aromatically vibrant wine, with notes of watermelon, strawberry, herb, rhubarb and melon. It's medium weight, with pleasing textural richness to the guava flavors. A touch of sugar and pleasing acidity that tie it all together.
Pale grapefruit color with notes of citrus blossom, strawberry and watermelon. Fruity and floral with medium body, bright acidity and a clean, pretty finish.
Pinot Gris grapes from select Columbia Valley vineyards were left to hang until they developed a bright tint, then gently pressed and the clarified juice slowly fermented at cool temperatures to retain its intensely vibrant aromatics and flavors.
