Tasting Note:

They Eyrie Pinot Noir Willamette Valley is probably the estates most recognisable wine.

Around 3.8% of the final blend was whole bunch fermented. The resulting wine has an appealing transparency of flavours that veer from spice to wild plum then violets, then a bittersweet, salty hedgerow note and stony, ferrous minerality towards the finish. Texture and delicacy are the hallmarks here, with surprising depth of fruit for a wine that demands so little. Lovely indeed, and a wine that will still have things to say when the end of the bottle is reached.
