The Tower | Pinot Noir
Our Pinot Noir draws fruit sourced from two select vineyards set in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA. A single blend in created each year to showcase the nuances of the vintage through the balance between two distinctly different sites. The Tower is created in the vineyards, with immaculate fruit harvested at the right time to preserve the harmony between acidity, tannin, and fruit. The fruit is fermented with native yeast and aged in 20% new French barriques for 11 months prior to bottling.
The Sunflower | Chardonnay
Our Chardonnay comes from a very small allocation of 1.5 tons, comprised of three clones to ensure a diversity of flavours and textures in the wine. Once pressed, the juice is racked into 25% new French barriques, where fermentation occurs naturally. The wine ages for 11 months with occasional stirring of the lees, bringing richness to the mouthfeel while highlighting the wines natural minerality.
