Vintage Notes

The 2015 vintage was both hot and dry generally yielding wines of warm fruit and power. Since there was no weather or disease pressure, it was up to the terroir and the winemakers to produce what they felt should be the best possible outcomes. In retrospect, a lot of the Pinot Noirs are darker in fruit, spicy and warm on the palate. The better examples are perhaps a bit more structured when acidity could be preserved, showcasing fresher aromatics.  

HARVEST & WINEMAKING NOTES 

Every wine produced under the Angela Estate label is single vineyard, estate Pinot Noir. The vines are farmed nutritionally, which treats the microbiology in the vineyards section by section. Soil and stem samples are analyzed for nutritional value. It is the most specific grape farming imaginable.

Our fruit is hand harvested in the early morning in small 14” buckets. It is then hand sorted and de-stemmed, deposited into one-ton bins for small-batch fermentations. After fermentation, the free-run juice is settled and put into barrel. The must is placed in “The Girls,” specialized bladder presses for gentle pressing that do not exceed one atmosphere of pressure. The wine rests for 11 months in 30% new French oak barrels. We like Cadus barrels for their warm tonality.

WINE STATISTICS 

Planted in 2006 by Ken Wright and crew, the Angela Vineyard is located in the Yamhill-Carlton AVA. The soils are ancient marine sediment soils: Wellsdale, Peavine, Willakenzie & Melbourne. The elevation runs between 250’ – 400’. The clonal selection is: Wadenswil (17 acres) Dijon 777 (12 acres) and Dijon 115 (5 acres) on Riparia Gloire, 101-14 & 3309 rootstocks. Located on the Savannah Ridge, a unique outcropping of soil that leaves our site drier and accesses mother rock in 5 – 7 years.
