Antica Terra Pinot Noir Willamette Valley Botanica 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Botanica is always sappy and sanguine with a taste of wild rose, sour cherries, and blood orange. It is tempting to define them solely by their compelling texture and lush personality, but there is a structural element that is equally striking. This balance between extraordinarily concentrated fruit and intense levels of extract is the essence of the wine. 630 cases produced. Not yet rated; 2011 vintage rated 93 points by Wine Advocate and International Wine Cellar.

Antica Terra is a rugged 40-acre parcel nestled in the Eola-Amity Hills AVA of the Willamette Valley owned by Scott Andelson, John Mavredakis, Michael Kramer and Maggie Harrison. The vineyard sits on a gently sloping hillside and siltstone and formed from old alluvium - la antica terra. The vineyard was first planted to pinot noir in 1989. When we acquire4d it in 2005, we began developing twenty additional acres and worked to refine the varital mix and upgrade clone-rootstock combinations, to realize the property's full potential. Vine yields are kept low to develop concentrated flavors as well as to hasten ripening before the fall rains. The vineyard management practices we employ strive for an ecological balance between the vines and the surrounding oak savannah habitat, while emphasizing techniques that enliven the soil and nurture the overall health of the vineyard. It is our hope that the reverence we bring to the management and care of the Antica Terra Vineyard will allow winemaker, Maggie Harrison , to produce complex, distinctive and singular wines that express the unique character of this very special place.
