Archery Summit Vireton Pinot Noir 2020
Archery Summit Vireton Pinot Noir is not tethered to any one vineyard site. Instead, it's an outgoing wine that reflects the merits of an entire region.
Opens with a burst of familiar fragrances such as lush, ripe raspberries and dark chocolate. Juicy red fruit backed by a clean minerality and generous notes of earth, caramel and chocolate emerge on the palate. Structure, texture and flavour combine with a youthful acidity to offer a lengthy, memorable finish.
Fun Fact: A vireton is a crossbow arrow with a specially angled feather, allowing it to spin in flight.
100% Pinot Noir. The fruit comes from small lots of vineyards in Willamette Valley with lower-than-average yields of concentrated clusters. Aligned in latitude with Burgundy, the Willamette Valley is America’s foremost growing region for cool-climate Pinot Noir. Willamette Valley is the second AVA to be granted Protected Geographical Indication (PGI) status under EU law .Early hand-picking of the fruit from 15 September to lock in freshness and acidity. Hand sorting of the clusters, then fermentation in wooden and stainless steel open-top tanks with a healthy addition of whole cluster fruit (18%) for additional structure. Pumping over twice daily for tanks during primary fermentation for measured extraction, then manual daily punch downs to wrap up the fermentation process. A combination of native yeast and inoculated lots, the wine ages for 10 months in French oak, gentle racking via gravity to barrel.
