2017 Dundee Hills Pinot Noir
This wine saw mostly whole berry, and primarily native yeast fermentation, before aging primarily in neutral French oak for almost a year. We are excited to bottle our 2017 Dundee Hills Pinot Noir.
The 2017 vintage presented a challenge with a cold winter and a cooler than normal spring. However, ideal weather after flowering ensured a healthy fruit set. Although the summer was dry and hot, the vines did not undergo drought or stress. By September, everything was on track for a traditional, “normal” Oregon harvest in the Willamette Valley.
