Variety: Pinot Noir
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.
According to Evening Land, this is the “most of the moment wine” they’ve ever created. “De Mûres” is a direct result of vintage mostly due to the wildfires that raged the west coast in late summer and early fall of 2020. With the potential for smoke taint that would affect the skins of the grapes, this wine experiences a very short maceration period and 8 months in neutral barrels before it’s released for immediate consumption. Its identity—somewhere between red wine and rosé. They recommend serving this “demure” wine chilled!
