2021 Pinot Noir, Temperance Hill Vineyard

2021 Pinot Noir, Temperance Hill Vineyard

Eola-Amity Hills, Willamette Valley

Temperance Hill Vineyard was planted in 1978 by the Koo family and has been farmed to organic standards by Dai Crisp since 1999. This land is believed to be the caldera of an ancient volcano situated along the spine of the Eola-Amity Hills. The 100-acre site sits at 850 feet in elevation and acts as a direct target for the Van Duzer winds. Exposure to these intense and often fierce winds each evening extends the ripening period and challenges the vines; this, coupled with extremely rocky clay soils, produces tiny clusters of thick-skinned fruit. We source one acre from the North Block, which rolls east just over the saddle of the hills.  

2021 Temperance Hill boasts its signature savory qualities of sage, thyme, huckleberry pie and orange peel, which are perfectly balanced with chocolate-covered black cherries, coffee beans and lavender. The wine is pure finesse with dark-toned fruit, elegant tannins, lively acidity, and a complex finish as a result of the 31-year-old vines from this block.
