The complexity, concentration, and balance found in a great Oregon Pinot noir are site dependent. Nysa Vineyard is just such a site.
Our Oregon Pinot noir fruit grows in a cool climate, at high elevation, and in soil of volcanic origin, allowing for complex flavors that extend to a lingering finish.
We concentrate these layered flavors by keeping crop yields under two tons per acre in this densely planted, dry farmed site.
Our southeastern exposure keeps the sugar from rising before the rich Pinot noir flavors mature. Our wines balance ripe fruit with sufficient acid, allowing for extended cellaring and accompaniment with robust foods.
