The Eyrie Vineyards Pinot Blanc Dundee Hills
Rich, full tropical fruit with lightly creamy mouth feel. A hint of nuttiness plays on the palate with a clean, naturalistic finish.
The Viticulture & Vinification
The desire to stay true to place and limit our impact on nature educates Eyrie’s viticulture and winemaking practices. In the winery, we refrain from unnecessarily manipulating the wines during their fermentation and maturation, allowing them to reflect the vintage. When Alsatian clones of Pinot blanc became available in Oregon, a small test plot was planted in Eyrie’s Sisters Vineyard. The block was doubled in the late 1990s. In addition we now purchase fruit from old family friends who own the neighboring Tukwilla Vineyard. The crop is picked by hand, destemmed, pressed, and run to small stainless steel tanks to ferment and age. We take a slow approach; our Pinot blanc ages 3-4 times longer than most commercial versions before bottling.
