Adelsheim ‘Willamette’ Pinot Noir (12 Bottle Case)
This product is currently sold out.
A richly supple and focused wine that typifies what Pinot Noir can achieve in the northern Willamette Valley.
Ninety-four percent of the grapes used in this wine were sourced from 10 of Adelsheims estate vineyards: 53% from the Chehalem Mountains and Ribbon Ridge American Viticultural Areas (AVAs), 16% from Yamhill Carlton, 22% from the Eola-Amity Hills,and 3% from the Dundee Hills. The remaining 6% was derived from non-estate vineyards throughout the Willamette Valley. After hand-harvesting, the grapes were gently de-stemmed into open-top fermenters, followed by a four to six day cold soak for greater flavour and color extraction. The grapes were then inoculated with a commercial yeast and punched down two or three times per day during their 7 day fermentation. After pressing, the wine was transferred into traditional small French oak barrels (20% new) where it was aged for approximately 10 months.
This Pinot noir displays aromas of pomegranate and raspberry on the nose and the palate as well as a light touch of nutmeg and cinnamon. Elegantly textured with seamlessly integrated with silky, textural tannins.
Pair it with roasted salmon, poultry (think pink duck) or hearty vegetarian entrees.
