Winemaker Note:
“What we are trying to produce is a wine that has a balance of fruit and savory flavors, but that is dry. We age the wine on its lees for added texture and weight.”

Winemaking:
Grapes were picked early for bright acids and pressed in whole clusters. The juice was fermented in neural oak barrels and aged on its lees for 7 months before going to the tank for bottling. This sparkling wine is produced in the “Charmat” style, which is a French method for adding carbon dioxide to the wine under pressure.

Vineyard:
Our 2017 Joyride is a blend of 95% Pinot Noir from Lia’s Vineyard, Chehalem Mountain AVA, and 5% Pinot Blanc from Yamhill Valley Vineyards, McMinnville AVA.

Bottling:
The wine was bottled in June of 2018. 470 cases produced.
