Ken Wright Savoya Vineyard Pinot Noir 2007
|Region||United States, Oregon, Willamette Valley|
This is the first vineyard directly owned and developed by Ken Wright Cellars. The vineyard is located in the Yamhill-Carlton District northeast of Carlton. Planting began in 1999 with 4.5 acres of clones 777 and 115 on phylloxera resistant rootstock.. Total planted acreage as of spring 2002 is approximately 17 acres. Vine spacing is 6.5' x 4' and the elevations averages 450'. The soil is comprised of marine sediments known as Wellsdale and Willakenzie. These are sandy soils which drain quickly and hasten the ripening process.
Bright and tangy, this lively wine offers juicy raspberry, cherry and lime flavors that linger on the finish. Drink now through 2013. 1,245 cases made.
