This wine is made from some of the oldest vines in Oregon, planted between 1971 and 1990. Brilliant, light yellow-green in color. Flinty aromas of wet stone and lemongrass open this wine, leading to a steely mouthfeel that is both soft and intense. Delicate flavors of hazelnut are mingled with lemon and grapefruit, and it finishes dry with a light mineral quality. The vines are grown on southwest facing slopes in a silt-loam soil with a rocky shale substrate. They are dry-farmed to establish a deep root system and maintain a small berry size.
