2016 TERRAROSSA VINEYARD PINOT NOIR $65 - $65

Once a newbie in the Harper Voit lineup, now in its third vintage as one of our estate sites, the ’16 Terrarossa is our three-clone blend from this tiny site that we took over the lease for a few years back. A return to making single vineyard Pinot from the Dundee Hills since Drew’s days at Domaine Serene, this wine shows the elegant red fruit and floral tone that makes the Dundee Hills memorable, coupled with the structure and intensity of judicious use of whole cluster fermentation. As with virtually all of our sites, high elevation sites and high-risk winemaking yield memorable wines in these warm growing seasons.

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 the 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.
