2020 Rose Jolee Magnum – Jolee (Joh-Lee) 1) a riff on the French word Jolie, meaning pretty. 2) The name of one of Del Rio’s founders, Jolee Wallace. 3) Two lovely, vibrant, fruit driven wines.
Lightly sweet with natural effervescence, Jolee Rose is a cofermented confection of Muscat, Riesling and Cabernet Franc. Cold fermented to retain the natural CO2 created by the fermentation process; this wine has a soft spritzyness, coupled with complex fruit flavors and crisp acidity. The acid acts as a foil to the wines sweetness providing a clean crisp finish that makes for an eminently enjoyable quaff and a fantastic partner with food.
South facing, our Southern Oregon vineyard estate is located at the northern end of the Rogue Valley. With elevations ranging from 700 to 1800 feet, the primarily ancient volcanic and alluvial fan soils provide well drained, nutrient rich soils which are ideal for growing premium wine grapes.
Great with a wide variety of dishes from Nashville hot fried chicken to Thai curry, carne asada tacos, or a strawberry tart. Jolee Rose makes an impression whether served a cappella or in harmony with your favorite cuisine, but is always best served with a side of friends.
