2016 Spring Ephemeral Pinot Noir
We’ve created three Smockshop Band wines that emphasize the immediacy of spring rather than the deep changes that happen over successive winters.
They all carry the name “Spring Ephemeral” and are early releases from the 2016 vintage that display particularly vivid and delicate aroma and texture.
This is Pinot from three sites that we work with in the Gorge, but is based primarily on fruit from a vineyard on eastside road that faces south just below panorama point. We’ve included a small amount of super long macerated whole cluster barrels from Hiyu that fill out the aromatics and provide subtle tannic power.
