Chehalem Estate Vineyard & Your Fall Club Featured Selection – 2021 Chehalem Estate Pinot Noir
Chehalem Estate is our newest vineyard and future home of Chehalem. First planted in 2007, this vast land is a 210-acre plot with just over 120 acres planted to vine.
The soils are Laurelwood, a wind-blown loess formed when ancient northeastern winds blew glacial silt onto the northern faces of the volcanic uplifted landmass, that we call the Chehalem Mountains. The topsoil is layered to varying depths. Many large, weathered basalt boulders have been found in pockets around the farm, as well as several natural springs in the two drainages, Little Hells Canyon Creek and Chicken Creek.
This site is the coolest of our estate vineyards, which means it is often the last fruit to ripen and it is well suited to warmer vintages. Wines from Chehalem Estate display high-toned red fruit characteristics such as wild strawberry and pie cherry in the Pinot Noir.
