Résonance Vineyard Pinot Noir 2019 6x75cl

Yamhill-Carlton AVA

The wine has a very nice ruby color with at first a restrained bouquet that opens up after few minutes. Aromas of ripe fruits and spices are supported by nice and subtle oak notes. The mouth is tight, lively and at the same time mellow. On the palate the tannins are well integrated, with a nice structure, displaying a very interesting minerality typical of the Résonance Vineyard soil.

Vineyards

Résonance Vineyard is situated in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA, which is located within Oregon's Willamette Valley, just west of Carlton at the foothills of the Coast Range. It is a 13ha property, with 8 ha of vineyard planted with Pinot Noir. The vineyard sits on a convex portion of a low, west-east oriented ridge emerging out of the Coast Range, at an altitude of 80 to 150 meters above sea level. Soils are primarily Willakenzie (old sedimentary deposits) and Yamhill (ancient submarine basaltic soil).

Vintage

A warm spring created great weather conditions for bloom in early June leading to a sunny and cool summer, perfect for classic Oregon Pinot noir. After a dry August, significant precipitation in September meant picking between rainfalls, with harvest between September 19th and October 2nd. Meticulous sorting and care in the cellar allowed us to capture all of the greatness of the growing season, revealing elegant structure and alluring aromas in the wine. A surprise to many given the rain, 2019 is turning out to be one of the best vintages in recent memory.
