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. 313 cases produced.
About the Wine Maker
Rose and Arrow Estate wines are a philosophy turned into a project involving some of the world's most talented people in the viticulture and oenology. Meticulous study and development of the terroir by Pedro Parra, bio-dynamic viticulture combined with the winemaking expertise of Bourgogne hot-shot Louis-Michel Liger-Belair resulted in some of the most exciting and outstanding wines made in the USA. After years of experimentation and improvements, 2017 is the first vintage that Rose and Arrow has been made available outside the USA. Each of The seven cuvées are singlular and expressive, eachwith their own character, specific structure and minerality.
