St. Innocent Pinot Noir Freedom Hill Vineyard 2017

Product description

Mark Vlossak fell in love with sparkling wine in the early 1980s, which led to wine classes and study. He saw Oregon as a bright spot to grow Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, the backbone grapes of Champagne. He founded St. Innocent Winery in 1988 when there were just 40 wineries in the state. Now there are more than 900. While he makes some sparkling wine, the primary focus at the small family winery is single-vineyard still wines, mainly from Pinot Noir. The goal of Vlossak is to capture the character of each of the individual vineyards.

The Freedom Hill vineyard, owned and operated by Dan, Helen and Dustin Dusschee, produces fruit for St. Innocent and several other top Oregon wineries, including Ken Wright Cellars, Purple Hands Wine and Evesham Wood. It is a prime spot in the valley. The 2017 Freedom Hill from St. Innocent offers black cherry, vanilla, leather, spice and earth flavours. It has soft tannins and bright acid, carrying a long finish. Try it with duck in a cherry sauce, butternut squash soup or mushroom pasta.
