Clay Court sits atop a picturesque hillside in the Parrett Mountain zone of the Chehalem Mountains AVA. This 15 acre all-Pinot-Noir vineyard was planted in 2001 with the classic Pommard and modern Dijon 115 and 777 clones of Pinot Noir. Clay Court vineyards rest on dark red Jory clay soils, with gentle, well-drained east-facing slopes.

The Clay Court Pinot Noir fruit is fermented in small, temperature controlled steel tanks, hand punched down twice daily then aged for ten months in 40% new French oak. Then winemaking team then carefully blends the barrels most representative of the character of the vineyard.

Grape Variety: 100% Pinot Noir

Tasting note: A muscular expression of Pinot Noir with rich, concentrated red and black fruits flecked with savoury spice and layers of complexity which reveal themselves after a little time in the glass. The tannins are fine and long, expressing the ferrous nature of the vineyard which lingers on the palate long after drinking. 

Food Match: Ideal with beef in gravy sauce

Vintage: 2015
