Rose and Arrow - Yamhill Close 2017
|Availability:||In stock (48)|
A mille-feuille of rock lightened with silt and clay a sprinkling of stones and pebbles. The small feeder roots of the vines work themselves completely into the horizontal layers of this very unusual for Oregon rock pastry. These basalt rocks are all about the fractures providing space for tiny amounts of clay, a unique micro-biome and feathery roots which provoke great tension holding together its mineral and fruit driven sides. Yamhill Close is like a suspension bridge anchored by opposing notions of flesh and bone.
