The 2018 Matthews Rosé was crafted from a couple of vineyards across two separate AVAs in Washington State in the Columbia Valley and Walla Walla Valley. Farmed using sustainable practices, the vines were hand-harvested in the mornings of September 13th and 17th. Upon arriving in the winery, each cluster was de-stemmed and macerated for 12-18 hours before pressing. Using only free-run wine, it was then moved to stainless steel tanks for 4 months. Evaluated over 40 times by our winemaking team, only 864 cases were bottled.

Tasting Notes

A complex nose of chamomile, watermelon and rose water. Hints of dried pineapple, nectarine and spice cut through a background of tangerine and white flowers. Silky and fresh, with ethereal texture carrying macerated citrus and stone fruits. Exceedingly drinkable.

Food Pairing Recommendations

Niçoise salad with tapenade and rosemary crackers

Awards & Accolades

"The 2018 Matthews Rose is another beautiful new wine by the talented Aryn Morell. The wine opens with a bright bouquet of red cherry, ripe kiwi, guava and suggestions of wild mushroom. The palate reveals a kiss of sweetness and a wonderfully soft texture. Red currant jelly, ripe strawberry and cran-orange flavors round out this awesome new Rose’. Drink 2019-2025."
