2017 Wind & Stone Pinot Noir

Wind & Stone is a selection of Pinot Noir grown in the Eola-Amity Hills of the Willamette Valley. Here the winds of the Van Duzer Corridor blow across stony volcanic soil vineyards to create a softly textured wine with bright flashes of red fruit notes and mineral precision.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2017 Wind & Stone Pinot Noir reflects the greater impact of our own Lingua Franca Estate fruit in the wine. The resulting aromas are beautiful expressions of rose petal, wet stone, black plum, red cherry, and savory elements. It has a remarkably delicate tannin structure, but is also layered with seductive fruit. It is vibrant and fresh.
Vineyard Notes
The majority of the fruit for this vintage comes from Lingua Franca Estate, from various blocks of Dijon Clones and Pommard. The remainder is comprised of fruit from selected vineyards in the Eola-Amity Hills near to us that have similar terroirs and flavors.
Production Notes
2017 Wind & Stone was fermented with around 25% whole cluster fruit. The grapes were fed bin by bin, not pumped, into small format stainless steel fermenting tanks of between 2 to 5 tons capacity. Fermentation began with gentle pump overs and may have included one or two punch downs toward the end of the cuvasion. Pigeage was done traditionally by foot. After fermentation, the wine aged in a combination of 22% new and 80% old French oak barriques for 12 months and four in tank prior to bottling.
Food Pairing Notes
"I would enjoy this wine with grilled pork tenderloin with a sage-honey marinade, roast chicken with chanterelles, or a fricassée of wild mushrooms on quinoa." - Founder and Master Sommelier Larry Stone
