2019 Spirit Hill Vineyard Pinot Meunier
Inspired by Coteaux Champenois bottlings of Pinot Meunier, we have embarked on an experiment to find our own unique character of red wine Meunier here in the Eola-Amity Hills. Our second bottling of the experiment, the 2019 is more acid and tension driven, showing delicate flowers, rosemary, and red cherry intertwined with savory freshness and firm length. Just two 1.5 ton fermenters were produced, one fermented entirely with its stems, the other destemmed. The resulting blend is a 50/50 blend from these two ferments, aged in French oak barrels for 16 months.
