2017 Dundee Hills Vineyards Pinot noir
An homage to our friends and neighbors, this wine is made vineyards within a mile of our estate.
Carrying the original name of our estate, this approachable and drinkable Pinot is focused and full, with firm but integrated tannins. The aromatics are a beautiful blend of florals, fresh fruit, savories, and herbs. A hint of chanterelle transitions to the palate alongside juicy plum, marionberry, black tea, and a hint of lavender.
Price$38.00 ($38.00 / bottle)
Established in 2005 by winegrowers Bill Sweat and Donna Morris, Winderlea is located on the original Dundee Hills Vineyard, a 20 acre property they acquired that was originally planted in the 1970s. Adding to their estate vineyard on the red hills bench, Winderlea secured the Meredith Mitchell Vineyard, located in McMinnville, as an estate holding through a long-term lease.
As lovers of wines that speak to the characteristics of each vineyard site, their winemaking is focused and minimalist. Winderlea is obsessed with producing its wines and running its business as sustainably as possible. They are one of only 60 Demeter Biodynamic® Certified Vineyards in the United States and were one of the first five wineries globally to achieve B Corp Certification, demonstrating their commitment to sustainable practices in all aspects of the business.
