The Willamette Valley is typically one of the coolest and wettest major wine growing regions in the U.S, which clearly favors the delicate, but seemingly boundless potential of the Pinot Noir grape - a variety that seems to show its best on the fringes of suitable grape farming areas.
As in years past, we approach the multiple vineyard Division Pinot Noir “Un” cuvée as our opportunity to make a vintage character wine in our lighter, finesse driven style. It is a Willamette Valley cuvée wine designed to perform well above its price point. In other words, it's our chance to make our favorite blend from our nearly 80 Pinot Noir barrels from some of the most sought after and high performing Willamette Valley vineyards.
Our Pinot Noir vineyards are farmed with a focus on sustainability, and our mission to work with only organically and/or Biodynamically farmed and 100% free of herbicides sites is a point of great importance to us - with all but one vineyard in this bottling being so . Our oldest vines and first site, the Eola Springs Vineyard has completed its multiyear transition to Biodynamic and organic principled farming while still being treated conventionally for Phylloxera (there's no organic treatment) in the old vines.
All the separate Pinot lots were fermented either spontaneously or via a pied de cuve (vineyard native yeast cultivation) build up. We utilized varying techniques, including a significant portions of whole cluster in some of the ferments - aiming to diversify the styles and texture of the juice and provide more spice, nuance and nerve in the wine.
We aged the wine in French oak, approximately 15% in new barrels and puncheons, for 8 months before being racked to concrete tanks for two months before bottling.
