2017 Flat Block

The Flat Block is a three-acre section of our Estate vineyard planted in 1979 on a flat rocky bench in the center of a long, south-facing slope.. The soil is volcanic in origin, very shallow and gravelly. The vines are 100% own-rooted Pommard selection, some of the last own-rooted Pinot noir remaining in the Willamette Valley.

VINIFICATION: TheFlatBlockfruitwas completely destemmed into one 4-ton fermentation tank and cold soaked for 3 days prior to the onset of fermentation. To maintain aromatic intensity and complexity we elected to keep our fermentations relatively cool (peak of 80 F) and extraction minimal to preserve freshness and vibrancy. The new wine was pressed at dryness and settled for 7 days prior to racking to barrel.

WINEMAKER NOTESSince its first separate bottling in 1991, the Flat Block has always been the standard of grace and purity at Bethel Heights, a stark contrast to its sibling block that sits just below, the sometimes- rowdy Southeast Block. We treat the Flat Block as gently as possible, keeping fermentations cool and extraction minimal to maintain aromatic intensity and complexity, and to preserve freshness and vibrancy.
