Tasting Notes

Colour Dark Red
Nose Vibrant, mineral-accented strawberry and blood orange aromas, along with suave Asian spice and rose flourishes that add complexity.
Palate Nervy and light on its feet, offering sweet red fruit and floral pastille flavors and a hint of licorice. Intriguingly racy and light on its feet, showing no excess fat and a distinctly pure character. Closes silky, sappy and very long, featuring repeating florality and a late spicy touch of star anise.
Food Pairing Goat's cheese & cranberry tartlets.

Kelley Fox Wines
Kelley Fox Wines is a small winery out of Portland Oregan producing Pinot Noir from self-rooted, dry-farmed, old vines of the historic Maresh Vineyard in the Dundee Hills, and the Demeter-certified biodynamic Momtazi Vineyard in the McMinnville foothills since 2007. Kelley Fox has been a full-time, on-the-floor winemaker for over sixteen years. Most of the canopy work in her blocks at Maresh she does personally and in solitude, including the biodynamic sprays. The wines are touched only by Kelley, but they are not a personal expression. No stylistic intentions are imposed. They are silent, living songs of these beautiful farms.
Willamette Valley
Mike Bennie
From a younger generation winemaker who has done her time in Oregon and now ekes out small batch wines under her own label. Her motif is: sources from biodynamically farmed vineyards, natural fermentation, no additions, low new oak presence in wines, shifting up the scale for whole cluster (whole bunch) in ferments (100% from 2015). I usually think that Oregon pinots come with a certain heft and concentration, but these wines defy that in a really pleasing way. This wine sat me back in my seat. It’s the wine you smash down on a pinot lover’s table and bellow ‘cop this!’. Screw cap too!

Such sumptuous pinot noir flavour, velvety texture, fine ribbons of tannin, purity and yet fierce drive. It’s a wine of ripe cherry fruitiness, faint spice, sprigs of herbs, a hum of earthy/truffle-like complexity, but with everything so finely meshed into the seamless flow of the wine, from first sniff to lingering flavours. Just medium weight, fresh-feeling and yet draped in complexity of savouriness, that tat-work of tannin and crisp acidity. Elevation of Oregon at play.
