Patricia Green Cellars "Hyland Vineyard Coury Clone" Pinot Noir 2017

Winemaker's Notes
"This is an amazing, old vineyard. How, back in 1972, someone decided to plant this insanely remote vineyard southwest of McMinnville is beyond me. Nonetheless, this nearly 50 year old vineyard is the definitive site in the McMinnville AVA and is one of the most renowned vineyards in the state of Oregon. It is farmed biodynamically and the attention to detail there is amazing, especially when you take into account its size (around 135 acres). We were offered a small section of the site planted to Coury Clone in 1989. Given our predilection for collecting the great sites of Oregon in our cellar, our desire to work with beautifully farmed old vine fruit and our obsession with Coury Clone this was a no-brainer. Our instincts proved correct. This was easily one of the top wines in the cellar from 2017, period. Having experience with the Freedom Hill Vineyard, Coury Clone definitely gave us insight into what the potential impact of the clone and site's terroir could be. Hyland is higher elevation and thus in volcanic (Jory) soil while Freedom Hill is lower and in marine (Bellpine) soil. The difference the soil has here across the clone is striking. Coury Clone possesses incredible aromatics and tea-like characteristics with strikingly red dominated fruit. The texture is magical, with a sensual blanket of flavors that coats the palate making for a discreet, sublime and incredibly complex wine. This a brilliant wine from an esoteric site that has made its way into the upper echelon of our bottlings in its first vintage."
