2017 MÜLLER THURGAU

Tasting Notes:
This crisp and fruity Riesling cross is a show stopper. A variety of citrus abounds with notes of grapefruit and apple adding interest.  A highly approachable wine with a touch of fruit driven sweetness that pairs with just about everything. A year round favorite that shines over the holidays.

Winemaking Notes:
The fruit was gently de-stemmed directly into the press to minimize skin contact.  Pressing decisions are done by taste and the press was stopped at just over one bar of pressure.  After four days of settling the juice was racked off its lees and inoculated.  Fermentation temperatures were kept at 55° to 58°F. We stopped fermentation after about three weeks when the wine came into balance.  The wine was then re-racked for cold stabilization and filtering and was bottled in February 2018.

Harvest Notes:
Many Pacific Northwest vintners will remember 2017 for the dozens of wildfires that swept through the region that started in July and lasted for months, burning hundreds of thousands of acres in Washington and Oregon and blanketing both states in smoke and ash. While some vineyards were affected by the fires and smoke we were thankful that our vineyard was not. Overall, the 2017 vintage was very different from the previous three years, with harvest occurring at a more traditional time. The cool, wet spring delayed flowering for the region's vines until late June, setting the stage for a later harvest while hot, dry conditions prevailed through the summer. Our harvest began in earnest the second week in October and continued to end of the month.

Our winery and our estate vineyard, Dunn Forest, are LIVE Certified Sustainable and Salmon Safe. The vineyard is hand cultivated allowing us to respond to individual vine needs.
