2017 Pinot Noir

51Weeks Winemaking

Nemarniki Vineyard
Chehalem Mountains AVA
Willamette Valley, Oregon

Available exclusively at Amaterra

Nemarniki Vineyard is a picturesque site in the Chehalem Mountains. A chance meeting occurred while winemaker Matt Vuylsteke rode his bicycle by the vineyard and met grower Diane Nemarnik. A long conversation led to many years of working together and a great friendship. Leading with aromas of bright red fruits of cherry and red raspberry into a palate of cocoa and spice, this Pinot Noir is built to age gracefully.
