2017 Legacy Helen's Pinot Noir 1.5L

2017 Legacy Helen's Pinot Noir 1.5L

WINEMAKER’S NOTES

Named after Bill Stoller’s aunt, this wine is made primarily from the Wädenswil clone of Pinot Noir. Helen’s has an elegant nose of ripe, succulent red fruit, which gives way to secondary notes of earth and rose petals. The palate is vibrant with a delicate tension that is supported by flavors of ferrous minerality and red fruit through a long finish.

VINTAGE OVERVIEW 

The 2017 vintage is classically Oregon. Despite a cold winter and cooler than normal spring, ideal weather after flowering created a healthy fruit set, with as much as 20% more berries per cluster than average. Summer was dry and hot, but vines saw little drought stress. By September, everything was on track for a traditional, “normal” Oregon harvest in the Willamette Valley, with Pinot Noir exhibiting outstanding quality. Harvest produced a bumper crop with intense flavor, and perfect sugar and acid levels.
