2017 Old Vine Series: Meredith Mitchell Vineyard Pinot Noir
Our inaugural Old Vine Series features three vineyards whose reputation and fruit quality proceeds them. As a grape vine ages, its fruit becomes more concentrated and complex; vine output slows, but quality increases. Meredith Mitchell is a historic 25-acre vineyard located within the McMinnville AVA. Planted in 1988, this 31-year-old site is now farmed biodynamically (as is the Cristom estate.) Featuring Yamhill Soils - which are sedimentary in nature, sitting over fractured basalt - this site offers a clear, focused reflection of place within the valley.
