Winemaker Notes

Our 2018 Pinot Gris embodies the diverse characteristics of our estate vineyard expressed artfully through the winemaking process.  The wine has aromas and flavors of nectarine, lemon zest, minerals and elderflower. Enjoy over the next year for greatest enjoyment. 

Vineyard Notes

Our Pinot Gris largely comes from 3 of our estate vineyards in Salem: Delaney, Hylo and St Jory. In the St. Jory vineyard the vines are spaced 5’ x 8’; the older vineyards, Delaney and Hylo, use 5 ’x 10’ spacing. The soils in these vineyards are Jory and Nekia – weak volcanic ash and rock types that promote low-yielding vines.

Vineyard practices are the leading factor in high quality fruit, and the vineyard management follows a strict regime. Shoot thinning is performed early in the year; after fruit set, leaves are removed in the fruit zone on the east side of the vines. Later, the clusters are counted and thinned to a maximum of 28 clusters per vine. Once the grapes have achieved 75% color, a final cluster thinning is performed to remove any green or second crop clusters. The average yield is 2 tons per acre.
