Winemaker's Notes

Certified organically grown by Oregon Tilth according to NOP standards.

Nestled on a lower terrace of the Eola-Amity Hills' eastern slope in Oregon's Willamette Valley, our east facing 13 acre estate vineyard, Le Puits Sec, was planted in 1986. The soils are primarily basalt-derived volcanic and very well-drained, thus yielding pinot noir with great structure and at the same time aromatic and with finesse. As well, chardonnay and the Alsatian varieties thrive in this micro-climate, producing intensely varietal yet subtle wines. Evesham Wood obtained organic certification for both our estate vineyard and winery from Oregon Tilth in 2000. In addition, we are charter members of the Deep Roots Coalition, an advocacy group for wines produced exclusively from non-irrigated vines. Since 2005 Evesham Wood has been associated with the international organic/biodynamic organization, "Renaissance des Appellations", whose members are required to adhere to rigid organic and quality standards.

Critical Acclaim

"Light ruby. A highly expressive and ultra pure nose combines very fresh red pinot, cranberry and Bing cherry aromas that slide seamlessly into rich, round and generous medium-bodied flavors that dance across the palate with a silky mouth feel and fine length. This is really lovely as it delivers plenty of flavor authority in a lighter-weight package as the focus and balance are impeccable. Note that while this is already quite seductive, I believe that there is ample development potential present."
