THE WINE WHISPERER

South Stage Cellars and Roxyann wines

EXERT…

Roxyann — Here is another southern Oregon winery of special note.

I just tasted their Viognier and it was simply lovely on every level. Ned, the very enthusiastic and extremely knowledgeable wine man who is the hard-working outside salesperson of this winery (I’m never shy on giving a good person credit), tasted me on this white wine. This wine had every component one would wish in a fine Viognier. One of the great things about Ned is that he allows the wine to speak for itself, that is, he does not try to influence the taster but allows the subtle, elegant flavors of the wine to speak for themselves. This is how fine wine people work: If the wine really has the stuff, it will need no introduction or prodding. Roxyann Viognier really shows its quality time after time and is worth every cent paid to enjoy it.

RoxyAnn blog update

Hi all,

Sorry I have been remiss in updating the blog in a timely manner, it has been a tremendous summer.  Very hectic, yes, but great things going on at RoxyAnn.

This fall/winter, we hope to have our recipe/pairing section done as well as general updates on the wines, the winery and special events.  I hope to sit down with John Quinones, our winemaker, for a series of short pieces and interviews, as time permits.  Hopefully, I can get Michael Donovan, our Managing Director, to contribute as well.  He has extensive experience and a wealth of knowledge, as well as being a major force in the direction that RoxyAnn Winery is going.  Our Southern Oregon Wholesale Rep, Ned Armstrong has also committed to contributing to the blog from a sales standpoint.

So, please stay tuned, we have lots of things in store for the blog; a “wine-derful” journey, if you will. (please pardon the pun).

CHEERS!

VERAISON- Grapes are showing progress

VERAISON

As we approach harvest, I thought I’d give a little update on the vineyard.  According to Randy Gold (vineyard supervisor), John Quinones (winemaker), Terry Light (ranch manager) and their assorted consultants, the vineyard has never looked better.  This bodes well for a promising harvest and another batch of wonderful RoxyAnn wines.

The French have a term (don’t they always), called Véraison .

The official definition of veraison is “change of color of the grape berries.” Veraison represents the transition from berry growth to berry ripening, and many changes in berry (grape) development occur at veraison.  (thank you wikipedia)

Veraison means that the vineyard and winery staff will be closely monitoring the grapes over the next few weeks.  This is the time that the vines themselves stop growing and concentrate on fruit production.  this is the prelude to harvest.

It seems that some grapes are already showing great color and some, such as Merlot, are already tasting sweet.  This is normal as Merlot traditionally ripens early here at RoxyAnn.

Stay tuned, we will keep you posted as the grapes progress…
