Cardwell Hill Cellars is a family-owned Oregon boutique winery producing over 8,000 cases per year. We use sustainable agriculture practices 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.
The 2015 season was another outstanding year for Oregon Pinot Noir! A warmer than usual summer followed by sunshine into late fall gave us more hang-time and higher sugar levels. The gorgeous, ripe berries were harvested in the cool weather of mid-October. The fruit was processed in our gravity flow winery within two hours of harvesting. Following destemming, which yields about 80% full berries, the juice was cold soaked for 48 hours and then inoculated. Fermentation was achieved at cool temperatures not exceeding 80F. The straight run and press wines were gravity fed into the barrel room located below the fermentation deck/crush pad. A combination of new and used Seguin Moreau barrels was used for aging over the next 10 months. The wines were racked from the lees in January. Later the wine was racked into the blend tank, settled and then fed into the bottling line.
