Ermisch Cellars Willamette Valley Pinot Noir // Set of 3
After making wine at Bodega Calle in Argentina for more than a decade, Ermisch Cellars decided it was only right to try their hand with the challenging varietals of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Through the years, industry veterans Robert Brittan and Steve Ryan have acted as consulting winemakers for Ermisch Cellars, and everyone in their small company has lent a hand in this project— from the sorting table, to cellar work, to bottling. They've always preferred complexity and character over power, and the Willamette Valley vineyard sources they utilize reflect that with each passing year. As with all the wines they make, the grapes are hand-picked, carefully fermented in separate lots in open top fermenters, and then aged in French oak barrels for a year prior to bottling.
With the 2016 "Erendira's Rise" Pinot Noir Ermisch Cellars combines the different facets of the Willamette Valley’s terroir in a standalone bottling. In 2016 fruit was sourced from two disparate sites – Lazy River Vineyard (Yamhill-Carlton AVA) and Lichtenwalter (Ribbon Ridge AVA).
The Yamhill portion contributes elegance, black fruit and savory notes; the Ribbon Ridge portion gives forward red berry flavors and palate weight. This is very much a hands-on project, and Owner/Winemaker Kirk Ermisch can be found doing most of the work from vineyard pickup to bottling.
Oregon is known as the most similar growing region in the USA to Burgundy. Thus, Ermisch Cellars wines will grow and develop in the bottle for many years and will always be wines made to enjoy with food.
“Warm and fruity from the moment you pull the cork, this ripe round satisfying wine matches raspberry and cherry fruit to vivid streaks of orange and grapefruit. Then it glides across the palate and on into a smooth rich finish, cloaked in milk chocolate. It’s a lovely drink-now bottle.” Wine Enthusiast
