Grüner Veltliner "Havlin Vineyard" Willamette Valley
The southeast-facing Havlin Vineyard is sited near the mouth of the Van Duzer Corridor, and marine winds come howling into the valley in the afternoon – this is a cool site. The grapes experienced all the benefits of a cool vintage – lovely aromatics, abundant natural acidity, and good phenolic development. Destemmed & crushed with 20 ppm of sulfites, then pressed after 2 days of skin contact. The initial stage of fermentation was conducted in tank, and the wine was then racked to used acadia barrels for 14 months. Unfiltered.
