Penner-Ash Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2018

Grapes for this Penner-Ash Pinot Noir are sourced from six sub-AVAs within Oregon's Willamette Valley, each with its distinctive profile, which together results in a wine which is truly emblematic of the region. The sub AVAs include the Chehalem Mountains, where the basaltic and sedimentary soils produce light wines with red fruited flavours and delicate balance. Ribbon Ridge produces wines with black fruit, spice and fresh earth flavours from sedimentary soil. Yamhill-Carlton which also has sedimentary soil and results in wines with red and black fruits, tobacco and earthy notes. The Dundee Hills sub-AVA has basaltic soils and produce wines with intriguing notes of red fruit, cola, spice and tea leaves. The vines in McMinnville produce dark fruited wines with white pepper notes. Finally Eola-Amity Hills has basaltic and sedimentary soils which produce wines with dark blue fruits, currant, violets and white pepper. Vinified in a gravity-fed winery, the majority of the fruit was destemmed and fermented with selected yeasts. A small percentage went through spontaneous fermentation with wild yeasts and whole clusters. Fermentation took place in open top tanks with manual punching down or pumping over. The wines were pressed without extended maceration, and were left to settle for 10 days. Maturation took place in French oak barrels with approximately 30% new French oak for 10 months where the wine underwent malolactic conversion. Complex aromas of strawberry jam, ripe cherry and brown sugar mixed with peppercorns lead to sweet plum and boysenberry flavours to taste. With velvety tannins it has a perfectly balanced palate.

Vintage Availability

We endeavour to display accurate and current vintages on all our wines listed on the website; however, from time to time stocks of the vintage listed do become exhausted. If this is the case with your order we will always contact you to recommend another vintage of the same wine, if it is still available. If the vintage of a wine is important to you then please leave a note at checkout advising us of this. 


Stock Availability

As we are retail stockists, selling from our Ledston shop as well as online, it makes it difficult for us to show a 'real-time' inventory of our wines and spirits online. As such, very occasionally, a wine may be out of stock that the website has allowed you to order.

To ensure a timely delivery, we are happy to substitute your order with a similar wine of equal or higher value and at no additional cost to you!

If this is not an acceptable solution please advise us in the 'Add A Comment' section at the checkout.
