Pinot Blanc is near and dear to the YVV family, we try not to play favorites, but, if we had a favorite white wine, Pinot Blanc would be it. Before it was commercially recognized we were growing it and learning how to make it the way we like. Rich full flavor, minerality, hints of melon and stone fruit with a creamy, supple texture that is just delicious. Pair with smoked cheeses, a nice poached halibut, or some oysters, after all, Pinot Blanc was meant to pair with oysters. From our family to yours, cheers!
The nose is inviting with scent of honeydew melon and citrus. Lifted notes of minerality and herbs lead into the palate, which is bright and crisp, an attribution to the cool growing climate in 2010. Wine is a beautiful soft straw color and will be delicious with various cheeses and seafood. Spectacular parings include oysters, scallops and a poached halibut with capers. Enjoy!
This Pinot Gris is beautiful, bright and balanced, a true representation of the varietal character. Aromas of pear, green apple, anise and caramel are followed by flavorful notes of kiwi, strawberry and citrus. Full of life to the last glimmer of flavor on your palate. Paired beautifully with Mediterranean foods, and Cajun seafood dishes.
Our small Chardonnay block was planted in 2005 with two different clones of Chardonnay selected for ideal ripening in the Willamette Valley. We always grow with low yields in mind to ensure quality first and foremost. The nose of this lively chardonnay blooms with pear, peach, citrus and strawberry through the finish. Fruity tropical notes on the palate compliment the aromas, making this a well rounded and delicious choice. Pair with shrimp, scallops or oily fish, as the acidity will pair nicely. From our family to yours, cheers!
Our Estate wine is a blend of ten of the eighteen blocks of Pinot Noir that reside on our property. This wine has beautiful red Bing cherry and blueberry notes that are contributed by our rich, volcanic, higher elevation sites; black fruit and sweet baking spices from the older, more clay-rich blocks adds the complexity and depth that we have come to expect and adore. This wine has shown well early on, but we expect it to bloom into so much more in the next several years. Enjoy this full, lush, fruit forward wine; it is sexy as all get out, so get some!
This wine possesses a beautiful dark garnet color with excellently focused aromas of black cherry and smoke. On the pallet this wine is rich and succulent with complex flavors of blackberries, Bing cherries, game and a touch of earth and minerals. The style is classic, broad and intense; this wine finishes with great depth and purity of flavor.
** "91 Points." -Wine Advocate **
A wine with rich velvety texture with many layers of flavor thanks to the wonderful growing season. Initially cherry and deep red fruit characters on the nose that come into full bloom once on the palate. A nice tartness on the finish that rounds out the experience and leaves a light clean tannin on the tongue. Bold enough to pair with peppered steak, but complex enough to be enjoyed on its own.
This wine is very atypical of YVV’s terroir, usually we see dark fruit characteristics, alongside tar and earth, however, this wine beautifully captures the 2011 vintage by expressing more red fruit characters. Bing cherry upfront on the nose blossoms into some nice floral and dried fruit notes. On the palate enjoy strawberry and spice, there is certainly something nice in a glass full of this wine. Smoky notes come through from our use of carefully selected oak barrels. Pair with stroganoff, Italian marinara, or salmon. From our family to yours, cheers!!
Our two Riesling blocks were planted in 1983 and 1985, they are own rooted and always pruned with low yields in mind, as to not over exert the vine. This makes for aromatics reminiscent of the old Alsatian classic Rieslings and a rich and full texture. This Riesling has 2.8% residual sugar making it semi-sweet intended to balance the natural acidity. Serve with foods that have a little spice, light desserts, or enjoy on its own! From our family to yours, cheers!
This Riesling has the honeysuckle and floral aromas that many of our recent vintages have had, we have come to call this this Yamhill Valley Riesling terroir. The 2.8% residual sugar is just enough to balance the acid naturally found in Riesling, leaving this a zippy, full flavored wine with a bright texture.
