Temperance Hill Vineyard

Planted 1981     *     Eola-Amity Hills AVA     *     Elevation: 850ft

Planted by the Koo family, and managed by Dai Crisp since ’99. Temperance Hill is perched at the very top of the Eola-Amity Hills with unrelenting wind gusts from the Van Duzer wind gap. These Pinots have an aromatic potpourri of berries, citrus fruits, pine, cannabis, and peppercorns.

Josh Bergström's Notes

The 2017 Bergström Wines Temperance Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir is red cherry in color and has wonderful aromas typical of the vineyard, but atypical to the Willamette Valley: ruby red grapefruit pith, Douglas Fir sap, Elderberry flower, citrus oils, and dark fruits like boysenberry and marionberry. The wine is intensely fruited, juicy on the palate with acidity for miles, and so much saline saltiness it could pair well with oysters, fish, meats, and even a cheese course.
