Description

Cardwell Hill Cellars is a family-owned Oregon boutique winery producing over 7000 cases per year. Sustainable agriculture practices were used to achieve premium quality fruit that is hand harvested. These practices are certified sustainable by Salmon Safe and LIVE (Low Impact Viticulture and Enology) the parent organizations

Cardwell Hill Cellars proudly releases a new and exciting estate wine, Old Vines. This special bottling is comprised of the best barrels of the Wadenswil clone which were planted in 1983. Nine barrels of this clone were selected by the winemaker for their intensity of color and fullness of flavor. This wine was destemmed, cold soaked for 50 hours and then fermented at cool temperatures not to exceed 80F. The cap that develops in open top fermenters was punched down twice daily. Next the wine was fed by gravity from the fermentation deck into the barrel room. Following malolactic fermentation, the wine was racked from the lees. It was aged in Sequin Moreau barrels for a total of twenty-one months.
