Lemon zest, elderflower, brioche, and honey crisp apple and a suggestion of baking spice. The palate reveals lemon custard, apple, pear, elderflower, and hazelnut on a cascade of flavors that echo through the stunning finish.

Description

From blend of five different vineyards, mainly in the north of the valley with one to the west in the Van Duzer Corridor. A full representation of the Willamee Valley’s soil types is on display with one volcanic vineyard, two loess (windblown) vineyards, and two sedimentary vineyards. The vineyards range in elevation from 550-700 feet, and were easily able to maintain natural acidity in the long 2016 growing season. We started harvest August 29th and were done by September 23rd.
