Peter’s Sweet Rosé | White Salmon Vineyard, Columbia Gorge AVA

From: $0.00

The White Salmon Vineyard Sweet Rosé deserves an explanation, if not a lip smacking, grinning slurp. I put together a combination of ripe fruit to achieve a wine that looks richly beautiful. A symphony of heady aromas and a fun wine to create. The blend is composed of the following grapes in descending order: Pinot Noir, Malbec, Chardonnay, Maria Gomes, and Muscat. The wine may be finish dry or with a touch of sweetness. The Malbec offers the color and a slight blueberry sensation. Serious Chardonnay provides sugar, viscosity and hints of lemon and minerals. Pinot Noir adds raspberry and blackberry notes along with that soft, sensual mouth-feel. Maria Gomes hails from Portugal and offers a spice and complexity that fulfills the aromatic nature and unique flavors the of the final Muscat component.

Winemaking Thoughts

Peter recommends additional acid, no malolactic and a low-alcohol tolerant yeast that dies with a brix or so remaining, should be a recipe for pure pleasure. A dry version enabled by acid and water addition (no malolactic) could prove the perfect tonic for those warm summer evenings. Peter’s Sweet Rosé – He grew it, picked it, and lightly pressed this rather dark Rosé juice for serious sensual enjoyment.


Underwood Mountain has recently been coined the “Burgundy of the Gorge.” This is because of the climate, the soil, and the ability to grow Burgundian style wines. White Salmon Vineyard grows some of the best Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grapes not only in The Gorge but in the United States. We listen to our grapes. They tell us what they need and how we can help them. We direct them like a conductor leads his orchestra. Each player knows how to play his instrument and all he needs is a good leader. Peter Brehm knows how to fine tune and direct his grapes. We have forty-plus years of grape purchasing experience and 25 years of growing and processing experience. In addition to Chardonnay and Pinot Noir we also grow Syrah, Malbec Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc. Our goal has always been to provide the finest expression of each varietal by matching it to our very diverse vineyard’s terroir. We follow organic growing guidelines, although we do not have any certifications.
