Pinot Noir Nysa
Situated at an elevation of 600-700 feet in the Dundee Hills, Nysa Vineyard was planted in 1990 by Michael Mega and is recognized as a source for some of Oregon’s most exciting Pinot Noirs. Nicolas-Jay’s grapes come from a coveted block of own-rooted Pommard clone vines that are some of the site’s original 1990 plantings. These tightly spaced vines grow in Jory volcanic soils with an underlying layer of basalt bedrock that helps allow the vines to be dry farmed. The older vines on this block naturally produce yields of just under 2.0 tons per acre.
