We were very excited in 2016 to be able to put our hands on 4 tons of Pinot noir fruit (all Pommard clone) from the Kalita Vineyard in the Willamette Valley’s Yamhill-Carlton AVA. The vines were 16 years old at harvest and their roots were deep enough to express the specific terroir of that site and its classic marine sedimentary Willakenzie soil. As a bordering vineyard to the Kalita Vineyard, our Trovato estate vineyard shares lots of similarities with Kalita – soil, elevation, macro-climate, etc. and this was an amazing opportunity for us to get a sense of what our own vineyard would be able to give us when it would start bearing its own fruit. We definitely were not disappointed. The Pommard clone and 20% whole cluster fermentation of these grapes grown in marine sedimentary soil give the wine an intense floral aromatic component, while the gentle cap management during fermentation creates an airy, seductive wine with an elegant structure.
