2015 Knudsen Vineyard Brut 1.5L
Planted in 1974 and at 900 feet elevation is where you'll find the Pinot Noir that makes up the core of the Knudsen Vineyard Brut. This combination of old vines at high elevation creates a unique dynamic of vibrant acidity and deep, textured complexity. Along with the four years of aging on lees before disgorgement, the neutral wood barrel fermentation and aging helps build layers of savory intricacy playing off of the wild cherry, cranberry, and ginger root freshness and energetic length.
Knudsen Vineyard is one of the Willamette Valley’s most historic vineyard sites. Knudsen is famous for innovation that has continually improved quality from clonal selection to high-density vine spacing.
