Lemelson Tasting Flight
This 6-bottle sampler of Lemelson Vineyards wines is a great place to start if you are new to Lemelson, or you are interested in trying some of our other wines. Our estate is home to seven organically farmed vineyards that span three unique Willamette Valley appellations. (Yamhill-Carlton District, Dundee Hills and Chehalem Mountains) Each appellation is known for distinct qualities that shine through in these wines.
2018 Chestnut Hill Vineyard Pinot gris: At the peak, this vineyard sits at 1000 feet elevation, lending natural acidity and elegance to the wines. For this Pinot gris, we fermented and aged over half of the wine in neutral French oak barrels, with the balance produced in stainless steel tanks. The resulting wine is classy and focused with a fresh, round finish.
A barrel selection from two estate vineyards, our 2016 Reserve Chardonnay is barrel-aged for 15 months in French oak. On the palate, this Chardonnay is supple, elegant and in excellent balance with the crisp, natural acidity which leads into a long and mineral finish.
The 2016 Thea's Selection Pinot noir is named after the Founder's mother and blends all seven vineyards together into a beautifully balanced wine. Red fruit and spice notes are matched with polished tannins and bright acidity.
Home to our original vineyards, the 2015 Chestnut Hill Vineyard Pinot noir is a high elevation Pinot noir in the Chehalem Mountains AVA. The wine is complex, showing high-toned acidity and finesse with a blend of red and dark fruit notes, earth and spice.
The 2015 Stermer Vineyard Pinot noir is a vineyard-designate blend comprised primarily of Pommard and Wadenswil clones. This Yamhill-Carlton District site is located just across the road from our winery and consistently provides us with lovely textural flavors of baking spice, floral and earth.
The 2015 Jerome Reserve Pinot noir is our most powerful blend, named after the Founder's father. This barrel selection of our finest Pinot noir barrels represents four vineyards and showcases our most expressive wine from the vintage.
