Broadley Vineyards Estate Pinot noir (known in previous
vintages as our Reserve wine) represents the character of our grapes,
soil, and climate—these are the wines that reflect the unique terroir of our vineyard as a whole. Only our own estate grapes go into the final Estate
blend. We destem this fruit and ferment it in open top stainless steel
fermenters. The wines are aged for 12 months in 30% new oak barrels and
70% one and two yeard old barrels. Like all our wines, the Estate Pinot noir is bottled unfined and unfiltered.
Our Estate bottling shows the power of our site. Composed of a variety of blocks containing older and newer vines, it represents a cross-section of the flavors producted by our warmer version of the Willamette Valley's "cool" climate - and at a price that allows a larger number of consumers to experience the "Broadley difference."
