The south ridge of the iconic Seven Springs Vineyard is planted on a rocky Nekia clay bench that runs along the coveted east slope of the Eola-Amity Hills. The vineyard meets the sun each morning and is protected from the intense afternoon heat; this allows for excellent exposure and ripening conditions.
The wine has intense aromatics: leaning towards fresh herbs, white peach, Meyer lemon and star fruit. On the palate Seven Springs has a rich concentration of fruit, showing layered textures and a long taught finish.
This wine was fermented with ambient yeast and minimal bâtonnage. Then aged for 12 months in a mix of new and neutral 500 liter, 350 liter and 228 barrels of which 40% were new. The wine was racked and blended in stainless steel for an additional 3 months prior to bottling.
