2014 Eyrie Pinot Noir Original VinesUdsolgt
Eyrie’s Original Vines is sourced from the oldest Pinot noir vines in the Willamette Valley. With roots reaching deep down into the volcanic layers of the Dundee Hills, the resulting wine presents a broad sensory experience from woodsey on the nose to stone fruit on the palate—expressive yet lovely and elegant. The 2014 vintage was aged 18 months in French oak barrels before bottling.
The ViTiculTure & VinificaTion
100% Certified organic. The desire to stay true to place and limit our impact on nature educates Eyrie’s viticulture and winemaking practices. Insecticides, herbicides, and systemic chemicals have never been used in the vineyards. In the winery, we refrain from manipulating the wines during their fermentation and maturation, allowing them to reflect the vintage. All the grapes for this wine come exclusively from the original Eyrie Vineyard in the Dundee Hills.
Elevation: 260’– 410’ Yrs Age: 40 – 49 Acres: 7
Eyrie’s original vineyard, and the home of the hawks that grace our label, the 7 acres of Pinot here were planted from 1965 to 1974 to Wadenswil, Pommard and Upright clones. The elevation runs from 260’ up to 410’ and faces south rolling east and west. The wines from this site are our most fragrant and complex. This is the original planting of Pinot noir in the Willamette Valley.
