The Story

At harvest time, preservation of natural acidity is key. Grapes with good acidity allow for fresh and stable wines, and better lend themselves to native yeast fermentations, less sulfur during aging and little to no filtration prior to bottling. Malolactic fermentation happens sometime the following Winter or Spring. 12 months in 228 lt french oak barrels and a few 500 lt french oak barrels and then settled in tanks with all the lees. The vineyards for the 2018 vintage consist of Seven Springs in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA, certified LIVE and farmed to biodynamic standards. X Omni in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA, certified LIVE and farmed without herbicides. Chehalem Mountain Vineyard in the Chehalem Mountains AVA. Dupee Valley Vineyard in the McMinnville AVA. Johan in the Van Duzer Corridor AVA, farmed biodynamically
