Résonance Pinot Noir 2021, Découverte Vineyard, Dundee Hills, Oregon

“This Pinot Noir features fruit from our second estate, Découverte Vineyard. The grapes are handpicked in the heart of the rolling landscape of the Dundee Hills wine region and defined by the red-fruit character and freshness typical of their volcanic Jory soils. Tasting notes: Benefiting from the cool and even harvesttime of the 2021 vintage, the Découverte Pinot noir has an elegant fragrance of wild strawberry, rose, and liquorice root. The palate is delicate and supple, with expressive fruity and floral aromas, balanced by vivid tension and energy. Vintage notes: In 2021 a late cool spring was contrasted by record heat in June. Fortunately, a warm and dry summer evened-out the dynamic start to the growing season, with high quality fruit in small clusters. We harvested Pinot noir from September 9th to September 23rd. In all our vineyards the fruit was ripe and very clean. The wines display beautiful color, complex aromas and distinct freshness. With such quality, we were able to push the maceration time, revealing concentration and well balanced wines.
