2015 Estate Vineyard, Sauvignon Blanc

The Estate Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc is a denser, richer more tropical version of Sauvignon Blanc than one would generally find in the universe of this grape. Along with the denser textural aspects of the wine the fruit is buffered by the same soil characteristics that make our Estate Vineyard Old Vine Pinot Noir unique. That specific characteristic is the natural proclivity of the older vines to pick up on the inherent minerality in the soil and water on the property. This underlying tone offsets Sauvignon Blanc’s general fruit driven tone making for a wine with both rich high fruit tones and crystalline notes that fill out the back of the wine. The old vine fruit was picked toward the end of September in perfect condition. It was immediately pressed, allowed to settle, racked and inoculated with a yeast specifically designed for aromatic white wines. The wine was fermented and bottled after about six months prior to malolactic fermentation beginning. Due to this the wine was sterile filter prior to bottling.

For those that have followed this winery over the years and gotten into some of the “special” projects we have concocted over the years you may recognize a touch of the flavor and texture profile from the near mythical “Panama White” bottling from lo the many years ago. If you do than feel free to give yourself a gold star for palate recognition.

2015 Estate Vineyard, Sauvignon Blanc Magnum 1.5L

It was just basically time for this. We have fruit from other sources, our younger vines are producing enough to buffer the now Willamette bottling and the older vines are just at a different level than everything else at this point. Nothing wrong with a little exploration of site with Sauvignon Blanc. This wine differentiates itself from the Willamette bottling with deeper and richer fruit tones, denser mouthfeel and a stateliness to it that is quite noticeable. About 20% of the volume was aged in a new Acacia wood puncheon which contributes texture and a lemon merengue sort of flavor to the whole endeavor. This is very complex and different than your average Sauvignon Blanc.

2015 Dry Muscat Ottonel

Muscat Ottonel  is a white wine grape variety that is a member of the Muscat family. It is most notable for its use in dessert wines from Austria, Romania, Croatia and Serbia as well as dry wines from Alsace and Hungary. We have produced this exotic varietal in a bone-dry style showcasing its elegance and fragrance of pear blossoms and white flowers. This is generally a lower acid grape and while it is far from high in acid it has a nice lift and snap to it that makes for a refreshing, almost thirst-quenching sort of beverage.

2015 Durant Vineyard Chardonnay

This has a terrific combination of richness, texture, fruit and acidity. The aromatics combine golden delicious apples, waffles and a light nutty character. The wine definitely has a density of texture but it is nicely cut with bright acidity making it serious and deft all at the same time. Currently there doesn’t seem to be any “signature style” to the new thinking of Oregon Chardonnay but many producers are shooting for something in a Chablis-like genre. Most assuredly this is not that. However, it is not heavy handed or cloying. We think this is a really, really lovely first effort that is immensely enjoyable and (we think) should do well over a decent period of years. We think you won’t want to wait on it though.
