Introducing 2014 Massale!

From John, November 28th, 2017

Introducing our newest creation, 2014 Massale of Pinot noir.

Also newly released are our 2013 Nebbiolo and 2015 single vineyard wines:  Clos Electrique Rouge and Blanc from our estate vineyard just outside the winery door and Abbey Ridge Pinot noir and Chardonnay, from our friends at one of the oldest and best vineyards in the state of Oregon.  2015 was a warm year, but our vines said “you call this hot?”.  Their deep roots gave them everything they needed in the cool earth well below the surface to make elegant wines without, well, breaking a sweat.  We think you’ll love them!

Our vineyards were edging relatively close to ripeness as smoke from the fires in the Cascade foothills hit the Willamette Valley on Sept 8. So we waited anxiously as the sun disappeared and the air cooled and the grape vines went into a kind of dormancy. Thankfully, on the night of September 17th an epic storm out of the North Pacific finally came rolling in with thunder and lightening and what turned out to be a massive amount of rain which helped extinguish the fires and renew our hopes for the coming vintage.

FIELD GRAFTING AT CLOS ELECTRIQUE

Armed with a You Tube video, 2 grafting knives, and advice from an old hand at grafting apples, we learned a field grafting process called t-budding. By grafting scion wood from our stellar Clos Electrique Pinot noir clones onto inferior Dijon clone vines, we will harvest an entire new vineyard block of kick-ass old red Burgundy in just two years!
