Siltstone Guadalupe Pinot Noir
WHY WE LOVE IT
- This premium Oregon Pinot Noir is sourced from the Guadalupe Vineyard in Oregon’s Dundee Hills AVA within the Willamette Valley.
- The Myers family developed the Guadalupe Vineyard in 1988 and have been farming it ever since.
- This complex, full bodied Pinot Noir is made in the classic Oregon style.
Varietal Composition: 100% Pinot Noir
Elaboration: Short cold soak took place in small, one ton fermentation batches of this premium Pinot Noir. Selected yeasts were used and extended aging took place in barrel for 14-16 months. Fined and filtered at the winery prior to bottling.
Tasting Notes: On the nose, notes of rose petal, brambles, leather, and dark cherry. This classic Oregon Pinot Noir initially shows hints of tightly structured red fruits: cherry, strawberry. Extended finish shows a smooth tannic structure and notes of leather, spice and minerals.
Siltstone Wines was established in 2000 by the Myers family in Oregon’s renowned wine-growing region, the Willamette Valley. They produce authentic Oregon wine with their estate grown Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris, Sauvignon Blanc and Rosé of Pinot Noir. All of the Myers family vineyards are farmed Certified Sustainable. Joel Myers first planted grapes in the 1960s’ and has been farming premium wine grapes professionally since 1980 with his wife Louise. They carry on that tradition today with their family.
Their sons Joey and David continue to work in the Oregon Wine industry after finding their own niches within the dynamic field. Their son John helped develop the family business and is now studying law while his wife Melissa is studying Public Health after working many vintages on the crush pad. David’s wife, Heather, manages the tasting room and marketing for Siltstone. The Myers produce about 1,500 cases of wine under the Siltstone label from Guadalupe Vineyard, Blacktail Vineyard, and Owl Ranch Vineyard. A limited quantity of their premium Pinot Noir label, J. Myers & Sons, is blended from select barrels after exceptional vintages.
