Hyland Estates Old Vine Pinot Noir 2021
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
Hyland Estates winemaking philosophy starts and ends in the vineyard. Wines that are distinct and intriguing with depth and breadth are not made, they are grown. In the vineyard we focus on the soil and it's biodiversity by biodynamically farming each of the founding blocks. In the winery we focus on getting out of the way and let the fruit of each block become the wine it wants to be.
The gentle slopping bench of Hyland vineyard is nestled in the foothills of Oregon's Coast Range just north of the VanDuzer Cooridor. This location is cool, yet uniquely isolated from extreme weather events. Resulting in a long and moderate growing season which allows our vines to have the full experience of each vintage.
Brian Irvine ~ Co-winemaker: A lovely mix of cassis, rose petals toasted spices and cedar aerate the room. On the attack, a mouthful of black cherries, dark plums and sweet leather greet you, with beautiful framing tannins to support the wine.
This wine is enjoyed with one of man’s favorite foods: bacon. We recommend either bacon wrapped scallops or for you red meat lovers, a bacon wrapped Filet Mignon where the salty savory notes from the swine can perfectly match with the sweet fruit and tea spices that emerge from the wine.
This is a fresh and gently spicy, red-cherry style with a vibrant palate that offers elegant shape and approachable, grainy tannins, carrying plenty of red cherries and berries.
