Wine Profile
Vineyard Notes
Freedom Hill is located in the foothills of the coast range 10 miles southwest of Salem, Oregon. It has a southeast exposure at an elevation of 425’ and benefits from heat rising off the valley floor. Hills to the east protect the vines from strong coastal winds. The vines were planted in 1999 and 2008 on well-drained silty clay loam.
Winemaker Notes
Vintage Notes: In 2018 the weather was unusually dry, with the spring rains ending almost two months early. Bloom was mid-June in warm, dry conditions giving excellent fruit set. Lots of clusters meant lots of thinning. After almost 5 months of dry, warm weather, we began picking Chardonnay on September 19th. Pinot noir from Shea came on 9/24 and we finished picking on 10/5 with the Postes Verde field at Temperance Hill. The fruit was clean, with ripe tannins and lovely flavors.
