LAVINEA, 2015 LAVINEA Pinot Noir Nysa

"Vivid red. Highly perfumed aromas of fresh raspberry, Asian spices, potpourri and smoky minerals take on an exotic incense nuance with aeration. Silky, seamless and sweet on the palate; lively acidity and floral notes provide energy and lift to the concentrated red fruit liqueur, spicecake and floral pastille flavors. Blends power and delicacy with a sure hand and finishes extremely long, featuring zesty minerality and fine-grained tannins that sneak in late."
Wine Spectator

100% Pinot Noir

VINEYARD Nysa Vineyard sits at 620-780 feet elevation in the Dundee Hills of Oregon’s northern Willamette Valley. Nysa spans 41 acres of volcanic Jory soil with basalt bedrock 8 to 12 feet below the surface. The high percentage of clay combines with soil depth to hold moisture late into the season, permitting dry farming. The first 7.5 acres were planted in 1990 to own-rooted Pommard and Wadenswil pinot noir. In 2001, 3.2 acres of phylloxera-resistant rootstock grafted to the 115 Dijon clone were planted, with an additional nine acres of Pommard, Coury, Wadenswil, and 777 on resistant rootstock planted in 2003.
