Adelsheim ‘Willamette’ Pinot Noir
This product is currently sold out.
Inspired by trips to Europe where the "wine and food spoke", David and Ginny Adelsheim first planted a 15 acre site in the north Willamette Valley in 1972 with Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Riesling and passion. Adelsheim is amongst the region’s founders. The couple shared a dream with a handful of families that Oregon’s climate and land could one day produce serious wines. In 1978, the first commercial wines were produced. Over the next four decades, Adelsheim Vineyard has grown up with Oregon’s wine industry.
The first vintage of this Pinot noir was in 1979. Our objective in producing this wine has always been a classic, intense and elegant wine that pairs well with the foods we like to eat. By blending the diverse flavours and textures of multiple vineyards, clones and elevations, we produce a richly supple and focused wine that typifies what Pinot Noir can achieve each vintage in the northern Willamette Valley. With this wine, our 34th vintage, our experience shows - we’ve long been acknowledged as producing a reference standard for the “Oregon style.”
Adelsheim ‘Willamette’ Pinot Noir 2018 is a juicy, sappy Pinot Noir packed with red fruits, crisp acidity and lovely crunchy fruit. It’s bright, extremely proper but equally accessible. Pair it with salmon or ahi (tuna), veal or pork, poultry (think duck) or beef, or hearty vegetarian entrees.
