Fermented to dryness and left upon its gross lees for 16 months in our oldest neutral oak barrels, Spirithouse Riesling is a wine of nuanced flavor and texture. Stylistically, we've taken a cue from our sparkling wine program by balancing naturally high acidity with supple autolysis. Jasmine floral, wet slate, and spicy nutmeg are balanced with deep layers of creamy concentration, all brought into focus with vibrating, juicy acid length. Serve at cellar temperature.
Entirely from Lone Star Vineyard, 2015 Nuthouse Pinot Noir exhibits the opulence and power of the Eola-Amity Hills while still retaining fresh fruit and vibrant acidity. Wild cherry, marionberry, roast fennel, and black tea frame its dense core, while the firm tannins persist through its long, creamy finish. After fermentation and gentle pressing, the wine was allowed to age elegantly on its lees for 16 months in French oak, of which 40% were new.
With the sparkling harvest lasting 3 weeks and drawn out into early October, the 2007 Extended Tirage Brut is bursting with crunchy acidity and well developed fruit flavors. Aged upon the lees for 10 years before disgorgement, the wine is impressive for its depth and creamy layers of texture. Grilled peach, fig, honey, and citrus zest are layered with the mature complexity of toast and roasted nuts, bringing harmony to a graceful and elegant finish.
