Pinot Noir, Teutonic 'Bergspitze'
The fruit is grown on the top of Bald Peak in the Chehalem Mountains at 1250 feet elevation, hence they call this wine "Bergspitze" which means mountain top in German. 100% Alsatian Coury clones brought back in a suitcase by Charles Coury and planted in Oregon in 1965. The 2018 vintage delivers the typical characteristics of this vineyard, lighter colored but deep in aromatics of bright fruit notes of cherry and white raspberry with a slight dusting of chalkiness. The finish is long and keeps your palate reminded of what you just sipped until the next taste.
