2017 Muska Pinot Noir
An elegant and herb-driven Pinot Noir with beautifully food-friendly acidity and soft, refined tannins.
Comprised of pinot noir grapes from Muska vineyard located in the Eola-Amity Hills. The vines were planted in 2006 in volcanic basalt-gelderman and jory soil.
This pinot noir is made up of 4 clones: 777, 115, Pommard, and Wadenswil.
Only 400 cases produced!
A wet, cool spring delayed flowering until late June, which set the stage for a later harvest than the previous three vintages.
Hot, dry conditions prevailed through the summer, yielding heat spikes in August. With a larger than normal fruit set, the grapes enjoyed long hang time leading up to harvest. Conditions cooled and brought in scattered rains with the harvest, which began at Brooks on the 28th of September and ran through November 1st,
almost returning to normal average harvest dates in the Willamette Valley.
The wines from the vintage show fresh fruit flavors and lively acidity. In all, it will be remembered as a classic vintage in Oregon!
