PINOT NOIR | DAFFODIL HILL VINEYARD
EOLA – AMITY HILLS AVA, WILLAMETTE VALLEY
DRY FARMED | UNFINED | UNFILTERED
The Eola-Amity Hills AVA has a unique terroir that sets it apart from the surrounding Willamette Valley viticultural area. Ancient lava flows and tectonic shift created the hills, and the weathered basalt soils here have proven perfect for premium winemaking.
Destemmed, whole-berry fermented in one-ton open-top bins, hand punched. Aged in neutral French oak barrels, preserving the fruit with minimal winemaker intervention.
Cool-climate Oregon Pinot Noir, terroir driven. Aromatic, seductive and silky, with hints of dark berry, plum and spice flavors. Balanced undertones of mineral character on the long, polished finish.
SUGGESTED FOOD PAIRINGS:
This wine is great as a stand-alone beverage or served with light appetizers. It also pairs well with mildly hearty or semi-spicy dishes like stuffed red peppers, crab cakes or Mediterranean pasta.
