Production Notes
The 2017 vintage began with a colder than average winter, with multiple snowstorms. Thankfully, spring saw a return to normal with bud break taking place in April. As summer approached, the classic warm days and cool nights made for ideal growing conditions without any major heat waves. During harvest, which took place from October 14th – 16th, we received less than average rainfall, which allowed for nearly perfect harvesting conditions.
Vineyard Notes
The fruit for this wine was sourced from the Foley Family Estate, Doe Ridge and select sites throughout the Willamette Valley AVA. The Foley Family Estate Vineyard encompasses 110 acres nestled in the Red Hills of Dundee. The Doe Ridge Estate, purchased and developed in 2005, is a 90-acre site and considered one of the most innovative new vineyards in the Willamette Valley. Additional fruit from Erratic Oaks, Hyland and Prince Hill make up the final blend.
