Adelsheim purchased its first vineyard property in the Chahalem Mountains in 1971 abd buit the region's first winery in 1978. Breaking Ground celebrares Adelsheim's commitment to the Chahalem Mountains , and is made entirely from fruit grown in the three major soil types found here.

Grapes for this wine come from 11 select hillside sites within the Chehalem Mountains AVA, 68% of which are estate. Soil breakdown is 20% loess, 35% volcanic, and 45% sedimentary. It’s a mix of clones/rootstocks. The grapes were hand harvested and gently transferred into stainless steel tanks for 2-3 weeks of fermentation. Once fermentation is complete the grapes are gently pressed and settled, then racked to barrel to undergo malo-lactic fermentation. The wine was aged for 11 months in French oak barrels, of which 29% were new.

Deliciously layered aromas of black cherry and black raspberry lift out of the glass, followed by exotic spice notes and a dark, rich loamy quality. This wine is like satin in the mouth—so supple. It toes the line between ethereal and ponderous in the most delightful way.

Would be great with roast spiced duck with plums, grilled salmon or a beetroot burger.

Please note: All case wine orders can take between 7-10 days for delivery.
