Vineyard

Yamhill Valley Vineyard is owned by the Berger family and is located in the McMinnville AVA near McMinnville, Oregon. With an elevation of 220 to 500 feet this 88 acre vineyard has vines spaced at 8’ X 5’ for a vine density of 1089 vines per acre. This block of Entav 55 clone Pinot Blanc is grafted to 3309 rootstock and was planted 19 years ago and is trained on a VSP trellis. The vineyard consists of Willakenzie Sedimentary soils with intrusions Basalt.  The vineyard sits on a gentle, southeast facing slope next to Momtazi Vineyard.

Vintage

The 2018 vintage was yet again one of the warmest growing seasons in recorded history in the Willamette Valley. It began with a warm Winter that gave way to a wet early Spring.  Moderate temperatures in late Spring led to ideal growing conditions throughout the region and continued into summer.  The sunny days and cool nights continued into late October which allowed extended hang times with very ripe fruit. Total Degree Days for McMinnville topped out at 2570 with wineries reporting higher yields and little need for extensive hand sorting on the crush line.

Winemaking

The grapes were picked from Yamhill Valley Vineyard on October 3rd and then gently whole cluster pressed. The juice was left to settle overnight and then was racked to french oak and was left to spontaneously ferment on it's own. Bottled with 980ppm of CO2 at a pH of 3.23
