No malolactic fermentation allows crisp acidity, subtle minerality and spicy characteristics to take center stage.

    PALATE: Peach, Gravenstein apple, kiwi, summer melon, apricot.

    43 cases produced. $28

    The first — and only — planting of Seyval Blanc in the Willamette Valley, 2019 Helios is named for Carl Nielsen's "Helios Overture, Opus 18." Planted, nurtured and harvested by us in the Bells Up vineyard, Dave won an amateur national winemaking competition with his 2010 Seyval Blanc, made when we lived in Cincinnati. Not related to Sauvignon Blanc, Helios shares many similarities in flavor and texture.

    PALATE: Bright acidity, star fruit, gooseberry, candied lemon, minerals, wet stone.

    Estate Vineyard ∞ Chehalem Mountains AVA Rosé of Pinot Noir

    99 cases produced. $22

After fermentation, the wine was transferred to neutral French oak barrels for an additional malolactic ferment to smooth its acidity.

    NOSE: Bing cherry, pomegranate seed, melon.

    PALATE: Strawberry, pomegranate, red fruits, orange citrus.
