Variety: Chenin Blanc
Evening Land's Seven Springs Vineyard is one of the oldest and most sought-after sites in the Willamette Valley. Al MacDonald planted the vines in 1984 next to the Douglas fir trees that surround the northern section of the property. The vineyard has always been dry-farmed and is positioned to capture the cold air from the Pacific that enters the valley through the Van Duzer Corridor, just to the north of the appellation. Rajat Parr and Sashi Moorman are two of the top names in the wine world today, and recently they obtained 100% control of the site. With their vigilant oversight and visionary stance on winemaking, the quality of these wines continues to elevate.
In the historic vineyard of Seven Springs, Chenin Blanc vines were grafted there in the winter of 2016. The Chenin grows in the southern area of the vineyard where it hugs a line of Douglas fir trees. This is a bone dry Chenin, rivaling those of the Loire; it will age for some time.
