2018 Walter Scott Pinot Noir, Temperance Hill Vineyard MAGNUM

2018 Walter Scott Pinot Noir, Temperance Hill Vineyard MAGNUM

Temperance Hill Vineyard was planted in 1978 by the Koo family. This land is believed to be the caldera of an ancient volcano situated along the spine of the Eola-Amity Hills. The 100-acre vineyard is certified Salmon Safe and has been farmed to organic standards by Dai Crisp since 1999. Temperance Hill is the crown of our AVA, sitting at 850 feet in elevation. We source one acre in the North Block, which rolls east just over the saddle of the hills. Exposure to the intense and often fierce winds of the Van Duzer Corridor each evening extends the ripening period and challenges the vines; this, coupled with extremely rocky clay soils, produces tiny clusters of thick-skinned fruit. 2018 Temperance Hill boasts its signature savory qualities of dried sage, porcini mushrooms, rosemary blossom, tea rose, and pine needles that are perfectly balanced with a fruity raspberry glaze, cassis and huckleberry pie, backstrap molasses, star anise, and clove. The wine is pure finesse with dark-toned fruit, ripe elegant tannins, lively acidity, and a complex finish as a result of the 28-year-old vines of this block.Vineyards: 100% Temperance Hill Vineyard, Eola-Amity Hills AVA, Willamette ValleyIngredients: 100% Pinot noir grapes, SO2Malolactic conversion: 100%Yeasts: AmbientWhole Cluster: 0%Unfined & UnfilteredFrench Oak: Aged in 228L barrels for 15 months. 40% new oakABV: 13.5%Residual Sugar: 0 g/l
