Aromas are lively and super fragrant. Notes of orange zest,
fresh ginger, sweet earth. The palate is fresh with vibrant
acidity and subtle creamy tones. Notes of peach tart, apricot,
and meyer lemon.
Tumwater consists of 23 acres of planted Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Planted in 2015 & 2017 with various clones suited for our vineyard’s microclimate. Soils are Jory, Nekia & Saum. Warm days cooled off by the near by Willamette River.
Food Pairing Notes
Post-bud-break, a cold front brought record-low
temperatures and frost into the Willamette Valley, leaving
many to wonder if there would be any crop to harvest in Fall.
May and June followed with unusually cool temperatures,
furthering the worry of low yields or a complete loss. July
through September was surprisingly warm and helped get the
growing season back on track. Ideal conditions continued
into October, allowing the fruit extra weeks of hangtime not
typically seen in recent vintages.
