Product description

Vineyard info: Blend of Tuckwilla Vineyard (19%) Four Winds Vineyard (37%) La Colina Vineyard (27%) Oracle Vineyard (17%). All vineyards dry farmed. Aged 12 months in barrel, 15% new No. of cases made: 1040 Appellation and soil: Tuckwilla, La Colina and Oracle are all located in the Dundee Hills AVA. Dundee Hills is known for its rich, red volcanic Jory soils, which were formed from ancient volcanic basalt and consist of silt, clay and loam. They typically reach a depth of 4 to 6 feet and provide excellent drainage. Four Winds Vineyard vineyard is located in the McMinnville Coast Range. The soils have a volcanic origin, primarily Saum, similar to Nekia, with a strip of Jory running along the northwest edge of the vineyard. They are made up of a rocky base of weathered basalt that was covered by wind-blown (colluvial) loam, which was derived from eroded basalt higher up in the coast range. As compared to other appellations in the Willamette Valley, these soils are uniquely shallow for wine growing with low total available moisture. The resulting wines have pronounced leanness and mineral tones. Crowley Wines was founded in 2005 with a focus on transparent, terroir-driven winemaking. Starting at the source, we favor older clones of Chardonnay and the classic Wadenswil and Pommard Pinot noir clones due to their late ripening nature and acid retention. We work with family owned vineyards and prefer cooler, high elevation sites. Our friends and growers are committed to non-irrigated and low impact farming. We are members of the Deep Roots Coalition and our primary vineyard sources are LIVE certified or certified organic. In the winery our highest priority is to create the most direct evidence of both vintage and place while making elegant and exciting wines. This means (wine geek alert!) minimal acid additions, no extraction enzyme, employing native yeasts, extended aging in mostly neutral oak and minimal fining or filtration. We value purity of expression over stylized wines and hold essential the belief that we cannot improve on nature.
