Winemaker's Notes:

The fruit for this wine was harvested on the 6th of November. The fruit was gently de-stemmed by our Euro Select and dumped into 1.5-ton fermenters. After a five-day cold soak and daily pump-over's, the yeasts, Rhythm, Melody, & F83 were added to the individual fermenters. Fermentation ran from one to two weeks with a temperature range of 60° to 80° Fahrenheit and each fermenter received morning and evening punch downs. The wines were allowed a three-day post-fermentation maceration before gentle pressing and racking to barrel. After 10 months in barrel the wines were racked off to tank for blending, cold stabilized, run through our cross flow filter and then bottled.

About Amity Vineyards:

Amity means friendship. Amity vineyards is a family and friends run winery. Located in the Eola-Amity Hills of Yamhill County. Winemaker Myron Redford moved to Oregon in 1974 with a dream to make world class Pinot Noir. A pioneer, he was the first to produce organically grown sulfite-free wine. The first vineyards were planted in 1971. Total acres 15, planted to, Pinot Noir, Riesling and Pinot Blanc with additional contracted. Darcy Pendergrass, winemaker from 2007 through 2012, and a huge investment in new and very gentle wine processing equipment have paid off with new heights of quality at this property. Ryan Harms & family from Union Wine Company purchased Amity in 2014.
