This 20 acre biodynamically farmed vineyard is in the Chehalem Mountains AVA. The fruit was handpicked on September 9th and gently whole cluster pressed to barrel. Fermented in 3 neutral French oak barrels and one once filled, it spent 14 months on lees with occasional battonage. It was then racked to stainless steel and spent a further 2 months in steel before being bottled.
