Like the terminal moraine of a glacier, this wine is the team at Gran Moraine’s maximum advancement toward the pinnacle of quality that the classic 2017 Yamhill-Carlton vintage had to offer.
The wine shows a core of red fruit and spice, with perfume and lavender. The palate is light on its feet and shaped like the end of a mid-evil flail. Resembles a ballerina with very large feet.
Gran Moraine’s vines perch in the marine sedimentary soils of the Coast Range foothills at the wild western edge of Oregon’s Willamette Valley. Each vintage, we push the limits of possibility—for quality, sustainability and personality. We believe in LIVE Certification, reducing yields as much as possible, picking fruit at the cusp of ripeness and using native ferments to create a full-spectrum aromatic experience.
