Tasting Notes

Fresh tree fruits weaved with hints of nutmeg that drift into a creamy texture.  This wine shows an intensity and freshness of fruit that is tensioned nicely with mouth watering acidity.   Whole cluster pressed, barrel fermented and aged in 10% new French Oak. 

Vineyard

Open Claim Vineyard is owned by Brett and Marnie Wall and is located in the Willamette Valley AVA near Dallas, Oregon. With an elevation of 420 to 300 feet this 20 acre organically farmed vineyard has vines spaced at 6’ X 4’ for a vine density of 1815 vines per acre. The site is a mix of marine and volcanic based soils with Bellpine and Jory being the 2 predominant ones. The vineyard sits in the eddy of the Van Duzer Corridor so it’s usually warmer than other sites near the Corridor. We sourced Dijon Clone 76 and 95 Chardonnay from Open Claim and the resulting wine has a distinct signature of apple, lemon curd, and hints of white flower that jump from the glass.

Vintage

This vintage now replaces 2015 as the warmest growing season in recorded history in the Willamette Valley. Moderate temperatures all spring led to ideal growing conditions throughout the summer. This put very little pressure on the vines, producing grapes with nicely balanced chemistry at harvest time. The warm days continued into late September which allowed extended hang times with very ripe fruit. Yields were up and the fruit arrived in immaculate condition to the winery with very little need for extensive hand sorting on the crush line.

Winemaking

The grapes were picked from Open Claim Vineyard on September 7th and then gently whole cluster pressed. The juice was left to settle overnight and then was racked to 16% new french oak and was left to ferment on it's own. This wine will be released in November of 2017
