Evening Land 2019 Pinot Noir" Seven Springs" Eola -Amity Hills, Oregon
The 2017 Seven Springs Pinot Noir comes primarily from our oldest own-rooted block of Pinot Noir at the vineyard. Originally planted in 1982, these Pommard clones thrive in iron-rich, volcanic Jory soils. These 36-year-old dry-farmed vines are harvested by hand, the grapes are hand-sorted, and roughly 90% of the fruit was destemmed. A combination of gentle punch downs and pump-overs were employed throughout the fermentation to encourage a soft extraction of tannin and the wine was aged in neutral French oak for 16 months. The 2017 Seven Springs Pinot Noir was bottled without fining or filtering.
