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!
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 mellow Chardonnay Starts with Floral earthy notes, and evolves into a nice spice once on the palate. The wine has a percieved sweet creamy enry supported by a full and viscous texture in the mouth; the finish has a resounding perfume floral note that lingers, lovely with seafood and creamy pasta.
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!
** "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.
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.
The Tall Poppy Reserve is only made in outstanding vintages. In 31 years of winemaking 2012 marks the 8th time that this specialty wine has been produced. Fruit is sourced entirely from our "Old Pommard" block which was planted in 1983, and the wine is a true single block, single vineyard designate wine. After vinification, this wine spent 20 months in locally made new French oak barrels, and the resulting Tall Poppy Reserve is a great representation of the area; dark, supple, rich, and structured, a true illustration of Yamhill terroir.
