2017 Lange Estate Vineyards Pinot Noir
The Lange Estate Pinot Noir is sourced entirely from the Lange Estate Vineyard, planted by Don & Wendy Lange in 1988. More than a dozen clones of Pinot Noir are planted, which are hand-picked, hand-sorted, and carefully vinified in small lots with a commitment to quality and authenticity. These estate holdings are farmed on medium-depth Jory soil with a gentle rolling, downhill aspect with a view to the east of snow-capped Mount Hood. Elevation ranges from 350' to 825'.
This bottling of 2017 Lange Estate Pinot Noir is a pure expression of terroir and displays the earthy minerality of the volcanic soils the Dundee Hills AVA is know for. Beautifully red-fruited with exotic spices, this deeply complex wine is backed with an elegant structure and balanced tannins.
