Tropical notes that are intertwined with hints of apples and pineapple that evolve 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 French Oak.

Vintage

The 2019 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 and Bieze 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. This wine will be released in May of 2020
