Food Pairing Notes
The stylistic vision of this wine is classic Oregon. Focus is placed on elegance, richness, creaminess and mouthfeel, with a balance of oak, fruit and acidity. A great wine to pair with food or enjoy by itself. The grapes were picked at peak ripeness and lightly whole cluster pressed to avoid phenolics. The must was cold settled and put in barrels the following day. Yeast inoculation took place in barrels and was fermented at approximately 60 degrees Fahrenheit for 3-4 weeks. The barrels were then inoculated for malolactic fermentation and stirred twice monthly until fermentation was completed in April. Aging was surlee until racking via Bulldog Pup (a nitrogen pushing system) prior to filtration and bottling. FOOD AND SERVING SUGGESTIONS Fresh Corn Soufflé with Bacon and Comté, Grilled Scallop Ceviche, Garden Zuichini Tartare, medium cheeses.
