2017 Matteri

Our hermit in the far northwest of Yamhill-Carlton, Matteri Vineyard surveys commanding vistas of the surrounding countryside from its gently rolling, South-facing slopes.   Dry and windswept at 550 feet, clones 115 and 777 do battle with the elements to produce tiny berries with powerful richness and intense flavor.

 

"I loved the 2017 Pinot Noir Matteri Vineyard and this beauty comes all from clone 777 and was mostly destemmed (80%) and is still aging in 40% new French oak. It’s fresh, focused, and medium-bodied, with exotic notes of orange blossom, dried flowers, raspberries, peach pit, and spice. It’s certainly the most complex and layered in the lineup and blossoms with time in the glass." 93-95 pts, Jeb Dunnuck
