Winemaking Thoughts

Typically picked at high brix which requires blending with a lower brix selection or the addition of acidulated water in order to keep the alcohol level below 15% ABV. Blends beautifully with Syrah.

Vineyard

Mosier Syrah Field

We offer Syrah, Grenache, Rosé, and Sauvignon Blanc from this stunning vineyard, located in the Eastern Columbia Gorge AVA. The vineyard is primarily composed of sandy soil mixed with clay. It’s close proximity to the river protects the vines from frost. The low elevation provides sufficient warmth to ripen their selected varietals.

The Mosier Syrah is grown in a relatively cool area. This particular Syrah field is in a basalt hole sheltered from the strong prevailing winds. The basalt container walls reflect the heat onto the vines and the loess soil they are rooted in. This is a special place that gives life to special grapes.
