Sourced from the Eola-Amity Hills, our ‘Maelstrom’ is our first wine to utilize whole-cluster fermentation. The 2012 vintage was glorious and warm. Grapes ripened gradually during a beautiful, dry summer and fall, yielding healthy, dark fruit rich in flavor and color. 

Production Notes
One third whole-cluster fruit was aged for sixteen months in French oak, of which 25% was new. A moderate ruby color leads towards aromas of red plum, black cherry and chicory. Flavors of wild red fruits, anise and sweet birch compliment a medium, elegant texture with firmness from the whole clusters. This wine is complex and layered yet slightly brighter than the 2014 Eldritch Hyland.
