Vineyard Notes

Blend of vineyards from the Willamette valley: 80% Holmes Gap Vineyard and 20% Kramer Vineyard make up this Willamette Valley Pinot Gris. Holmes Gap Vineyard’s charity block is made up of a 1.7 acre plot of Pinot Gris. The soil type is mainly Helvetia silt loam. These soils with a depth up to 72" are well drained with a high water holding capacity. Kraemer Farms is a multi-generational family owned and operated farm made up of three separate vineyard sites. The Kraemer’s have been growing grapes for over 20 years.

Winemaker Notes

This fruit was hand-picked, lightly pressed and tank fermented with two different yeasts before being blended.

Vintage Notes

2019 began with a warm, wet spring and bud break commenced on schedule in April. A cool spell of weather in June around bloom naturally modulated fruit set, lowering yields. The late spring and summer were warmer than average but lacked notable heat spikes, allowing for steady vine growth and development during the growing season through véraison, which took place in mid-August. A cooling trend starting in early September slowed ripening at the final moments, allowing for additional hang time and flavor development while keeping the fruit in perfect balance until harvest began in mid-September. The 2019 wines are marked by vibrant fruit flavors, ageworthy structure, and food-friendly acidity.
