Winemaker's Notes

Amity first made Blush in 1984 after a particularly cold and wet fall when the Pinot noir grapes did not ripen properly. In order to make a better Pinot noir we decided to make our first Blush. Right after pressing we drained about 20% of the juice from the tank. This gave us a wonderful Blush and greatly improved the quality of our Pinot noir as well. By removing some of the juice, the skins have less volume to color and flavor. This increases the concentration and color of our Pinot noir. After discovering people enjoy drinking our Blush we have continued to make it. The varietal base changes from year to year depending upon the Pinot noir harvest. Some years we improve the Pinot noir by taking some of the juice, creating a true Blush.
