This is the first release from the smallest vineyard with which we currently work. Terrarossa Vineyard is located at a high elevation, about 750 feet, in the middle of the Dundee Hills. It is only 2.2 acres of vines, planted at a relatively high density per acre and to three different selections of Pinot Noir: Pommard, Dijon 115, and Dijon 777. The vineyard is owned by David and Heidi Pasqualini, who spared no expense or effort to establish their tiny estate vineyard. The elevation of the site is a true blessing, especially in warmer seasons, as the fruit grew towards ripeness slowly and late, resisting the pressures of the warm growing season. Natural high acidity with fresh red fruit flavors and lifted rose petal floral tones are the result, a classic Dundee Hills profile. Drew spent a number of formative years as a younger winemaker working with fruit in the Dundee Hills and this is the first time that Harper Voit has worked with a site in the region that he grew to love years ago. In fact, we are now leasing the site and farming it ourselves going forward and as such, is the first estate property that Harper Voit can celebrate, with a few more to come in the near future. So, next time you Wiseacres are here to visit, we’d love to take you up to see this spectacular small site and you’ll see why we’re so excited to have the opportunity.
We did a three clone co-fermentation from the site, and also a straight Pommard one, with about 1/3 whole clusters included. The resulting wine shows all of the fresh red fruit character that the site can give, with a depth and spice tone that gives it great length.
