Big Salt Orange Rose, Ovum Wines 2022
Ovum Wines is dedicated to producing Riesling & Gewurztraminer from single sites in Oregon and Washington. Through minimal processing, the wines are a clear representation of the vineyard and vintage.
A blend of ramato-style Pinot Gris to make a wine that was both refreshing and serious. The Pinot Gris came from a vineyard in Columbia Valley AVA and was macerated on skins. The Big Salt component is a blend from 10 vineyards accross Oregon that illustrates different soils and climates.
"Big salt “orange rose” is nearly an equal blend of ramato- style pinot gris (when pinot grigio grapes are crushed and the skins are allowed to spend time with the juice) and big salt, fermented and aged in neutral barrel. The combination of these production methods left us with a wine that doesn’t look or smell like a rose – it isn’t as funky or extracted as an orange wine – it lives somewhere in between…or beyond?"
