Elk Cove Vineyards, "Mount Richmond" Pinot Noir 2022, Willamette Valley

Availability: In stock (5)

Mount Richmond Vineyard sits on Willakenzie soils in the heart of the Yamhill
Carlton AVA. The site was purchased in 1996 as a partnership between winemaker Adam
Campbell, his wife Carrie, and Elk Cove founders Pat and Joe Campbell.
The motivation for planting Mount Richmond was to emulate the wine quality from sites
such as our esteemed Roosevelt vineyard. The vineyard now holds the honor as the largest
vineyard holding of Elk Cove, totaling over 150 planted acres.
Mount Richmond sits at 300-500 feet elevation, lower than the vineyards planted at the
winery, which allows for earlier ripening. Planted in a high-density format (2100 vines/
acre), similar to Roosevelt, Mount Richmond sits in rolling hills just outside the town of
Yamhill just East of the Coast Range Mountains. In addition to the old vine Pommard
selection, planted from select cuttings off of Roosevelt Vineyard, the blend now also
includes equal parts of Dijon clones 115 and 777.
