Eola-Amity Hills sub AVA
his is winemaker Vincent Fritzsche’s three vineyard cuvée using fruit solely from the Eola-Amity Hills sub AVA of Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Recently, a couple well-known wine labels from out of state have purchased large swaths of land and popular vineyards, resulting in a blitz of media attention. For better or worse, it’s caused quite a stir in Oregon’s wine industry. These companies know there’s something special in the terroir of the area– otherwise they wouldn’t be invest millions of dollars into the Eola-Amity Hills.
So we recommend trying some of the wines made from Eola-Amity Hills fruit while the prices are still on the lower end of the Oregon wine spectrum. This offering from Vincent Wines is a great one to add to your list! It had an abundance of raspberries along with bright cherries and bacon fat. Nice acidity and structure with a full mouthfeel, this wine is a real crowd-pleaser. And did we mention that the finish is pure cocoa powder? Yum!
