THE WINE:  If you love ORANGE wines (white wines fermented on their skins), or wanted to explore what they're all about - Big Salt "Orange Rose" is a good place to start. It has a sunset cranberry color that comes as a result of Pinot gris skins being blended with the tangerine hues of Big Salt. It’s aromas remind me of a carrot orange creamsicle stirred into a cup of hibiscus tea, steeped with autumnal spices. Roasted carrot, ginger, red apple skin are on the palate. THIS WINE IS NOT FRESH LIKE BIG SALT, it's more like if Big Salt were a red wine.

98% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Riesling/Gewurztraminer/Early Muscat/Sauvignon Blanc (Big Salt White Blend)

THE PRODUCER: Established in 2011 by Ksenija and John House, Ovum was founded in hopes of producing Oregon wines that are honest reflections of time and place.  Our low intervention production method is a commitment to letting the vintage and vineyard shine, not the vintner.  Fruit comes first - our top priority is finding farmers that share our beliefs, and then getting out of the way so their hard work can be tasted.

 Native ferments, no subtractions or additions, except for SO2 - extended lees contact 8-9 months, for textural complexity. All of this is done in neutral barrels of acacia and oak, as well as cement egg and Austrian cask.  Ovum is committed to the exploration of Oregon’s wine growing regions by producing transparent wines of place. We remain open minded to embracing the diversity of Oregon, and will offer small production red wines given the time and place.

At Ovum, each wine is produced the same way - if the wine smells and tastes different, it has everything to do with terroir, and little to do with the winemaker.  Our hope is that through our attention to detail and honest technique, we can produce old fashioned wines in the modern world.
