Illahe Grüner Veltliner 2021
We have a 1.5 acre parcel of Grüner Veltliner on our Estate vineyard. These cuttings came from an original planting Lowell Ford planted in the 80’s on our family farm in West Salem. Those original cuttings came over in a friends suitcase from Austria. In 2021 we pressed this fruit with no skin soaking. After a gentle pressing we then ferment 30% of the juice in acacia barrels to increase texture and mouthfeel and the remainder in stainless.
