Tasting Notes: An absolutely stunning summer sipper with bright acidity and layers of tropical, citrus, and stone fruits with a saline sand dollar finish.
Vintage Notes: Rain events at the beginning of bloom diminished yields, and a dry summer was punctuated with unprecedented heatwaves. The timing worked in the winery's favor since the heat happened pre-veraison, and the vines handled it well. Harvest started in early September, but lower temperatures across the state allowed for a long and measured harvest season, with harvest extending into mid-October. No disease, high sugars, balanced acids, and great flavors. 2021 will undoubtedly rank as one of the top Oregon vintages.
Vineyard Sources: 81% Crannell, 19% Bellevue Cross
