In the words of Bill Holloran, he doesn't grow grapes, he "grows great wines". Believing strongly that the character and quality of finished wines are directly related to how the grapes are grown, he practices what he preaches, using both organic and biodynamic techniques in his vineyards and cellar. Holloran Vineyard Wines was established in 1999 by Bill and his wife, Eve, when they produced their first vintage out of a converted horse barn on their West Linn, Oregon property. This lovely pinot noir showcases the Le Chenaie Vineyard, located near Salem, Oregon, in the Eola-Amity Hills appellation. It consists of 103 acres of which 18 are planted to vines with a further eight in the process of being planted. Here, Holloran grows pinot noir, riesling and tempranillo on volcanic soils with an elevation between 460-585 feet. Pinot noir from La Chenaie is known for its intense aromatic profile, featuring dusty red cherries and bright high-toned floral notes with a hint of spice, as it is aged for 18 months in 20% new French oak. Mouthwatering acidity and ripe tannins make for a finish that displays impeccable balance and length. Organically grown.
