Pinot Noir Silvershot Vineyard
Silvershot Vineyard (Eola-Amity Hills AVA) is owned and farmed by Jim Fischer Sr. The 15-acres of own-rooted vines were planted in 1999 on ancient marine sedimentary soils. The dry-farmed site is kept nice and cool by the nonstop oceanic winds coming in through the Van Duzer Corridor.
80% whole cluster fermentation for 30 days in a variety of vessels. Following fermentation, the wine was aged in a mix of French and Oregon oak for 9 months.
