Vintage Notes 2019 – 35th Harvest Anniversary

2019 was an old school Willamette Valley Harvest: watching weather reports, valuing coffee over beer, charging bird cannon batteries, and consoling old friends newly moved to Oregon from California. Chats, waiting to offload an ancient truck’s fruit, were punctuated by “cool growing season, early rains, hang time, sugar, birds, electric sunset, botrytis, more birds, sunny days are overrated anyway…”

Despite an old-school vintage, the concentration, depth of flavor, color and structure of recent years all seem to be there. And the old is new again!

Winemaker’s Notes

Do you love Grüner as much as we do? We couldn’t be happier about releasing this frisky child into the world. It’s a bit less pensive than its 2018 counterpoint, as the mineral and spice side shows through in spades, and the weighty texture has been toned down just a hair. The nose is all oyster shells, white flower and jalapeño, and the mouth mimics the nose, with the addition of yellow apple, lemon curd, and white pepper. The juxtaposition of texture and brightness is remarkable, having weight and supple texture, but also having a mineral-focused cleansing edge and a juiciness that persists long after the wine is gone from your mouth. This is the yin and yang you’ve been looking for.
