Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Complex, inviting and elegant, the 2015 Archer’s Edge Vineyard opens with alluring aromas of wild mushroom, fresh leather, forest floor and thimble berry. The palate expresses deeper layers of dried fig cake and crushed raspberry, supported by suggestions of stone, tar and soil. This wine expands on the palate with juicy acidity that culminates in a lush, velvety texture on the finish.
Vineyards
Archer’s Edge Estate is our newest 7 acre estate in the Dundee Hills nestled between our Archery Summit Estate and Renegade Ridge Estate vineyards. It represents a culmination of insight gained from two decades of winegrowing, and as we continue to nurture its growth we look forward to witnessing the development of its distinctive voice. The soils here are primarily basalt based with some sedimentary at the lower elevations. Planted in 2007 with Pommard and our favorite Dijon clones, this lovely south facing slope is destined for uniqueness.
Winemaking
Fruit for the 2015 vintage was hand picked from September 12th to 15th. The fruit was hand sorted and soaked cold for five to ten days, after which native yeast fermentation was allowed to proceed under temperature-controlled conditions in stainless steel open top fermentors. During primary fermentation, tanks were punched down up to three times per day. After limited post-fermentation maceration, the wine was sent via gravity to 52% new French oak barrels and aged for 7 months prior to bottling.
