he Estate blend combines Pinot from Eyrie’s 5 certified-organic estate
vineyards. Farming is certified organic, but Jason and his team take this only as
a starting point. Viticulture at all of the Estate vineyards follows the precepts of
regenerative no-till farming, with strict attention paid not just to the vines but
to the healthy networks of soil organisms that support them. Not only does
this approach avoid the need for artificial irrigation, it also nourishes the vines
without the need for additional fertilizer, and captures atmospheric carbon.
Picked by hand, our Pinot noir is destemmed and put into a variety of fermenters,
from small one-ton bins to a 5 ton wooden cuve, to undergo native primary
Our barrels are mostly neutral—for this vintage, only 8% were new. Having
undergone native malolactic fermentation and aged for almost 2 years, the 2018
Pinot noir was blended after 22 months, racked once without filtration, and
then bottled and sealed under Diam cork.
