2019 Gruner Veltliner
Raptor Ridge Estate Grüner Veltliner was planted in 2006 on our Chehalem Mountains Estate, Tuscowallame Vineyard. Situated at about 500 feet elevation on Laurelwood Soils that resemble the loess soils of Austria, the site is an ideal place to grow new-world Grüner. The juice was entirely fermented in stainless steel tank using 58W3 yeast. In 2019 we were extra gentle in our pressing program, having detected higher-than-normal tannin concentrations in the skins.
