October 2018 Beacon Wine Club Selections

Mixed Club Selections

2016 OSU Woodhall Pinot Noir

Retail price $28
Club Member price $22.40

New Release
Oregon State University’s Research Vineyard.

Single vineyard produced in small 1.5 ton fermenters with the use of manual punch downs of the caps two times a day during fermentation. After fermentation, the wine was then stored in French oak barrels for 15 months before being blended and bottled. Wines were bottled in Screwcap Closures to retain it great fruit flavors and aromas.

2016 was the earliest vintage on record delivering outstanding fruit quality with closer to average yields. Similar to the last two vintages, the 2016 growing season continued to push the envelope for defining the new normal in Oregon as one of the earliest on record. An unusually warm spring gave way to moderate summer conditions, which provided even growing conditions through véraison. Though it was an intense growing season due to the early start, the fruit produced resulted in wonderful concentration and complexity with characteristic natural acidity.

Red Club Selections

2015 OSU Woodhall Pinot Noir

Retail price $28
Club Member price $22.40

Sold Out
Oregon State University’s Research Vineyard.

The 2015 vintage started with bud break in March, two weeks early in our region. The early trend continued with higher than normal temperatures through spring, which created exceptional conditions for bloom, flower and fruit set. As spring gave way to summer, conditions continued to be warmer than usual and consequentially grape clusters were far larger than typical. All in all this has been one of those all too rare vintages where you get high yields and outstanding exceptional fruit quality.
