The Greg T
Goodfellow Heritage Pinot Noirs
These wines represent the very highest achievements in vineyard, vintage, and my winemaking. The #7 is a wine I would cheerfully place in any blind tasting of 1er Cru Burgundy wines. The #8 is my favorite Durant bottling to date. They are the best of my Pinot Noirs in 2016, showcase two tremendous terroirs, and the case price is the best price they will be offered at this year.
2016 Goodfellow Heritage #7, Whistling Ridge
2016 Goodfellow Heritage #8, Durant Vineyard
4 btls $252
6 btls $336
The Travis Fantz:
Travis posted that he had a vision of a Goodfellow Berserker Cuvee in 1 liter bottles…There were a range of reasons why not to do this(like liter bottles, and that all of our Berserker packages were set and planned, among others) but reason doesn’t seem to belong in wine, or really even on the Berserker boards. I am pretty sure I will wonder what I was thinking later this year but here goes…
Goodfellow is almost exclusively wines from single terroirs, with only the entry level Willamette Valley bottling as a wine from multiple vineyards. Over the past month, I have been hammering out the cuvees for our 2017 Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays. To celebrate BD 10, I’ll pull one barrel apiece of vineyard designate quality Pinot Noir from three great vineyards. Whistling Ridge(60% whole cluster), Temperance Hill(66% whole cluster), and Durant(100% whole cluster) and blend them to create a Berserker Cuvee for BD 10. Barrels are 3-5 years old. The Whistling Ridge is from the House Acres that were the first planted at the vineyard in 1990. The Durant fruit is from 114 clone planted in 1998, and the Temperance Hill is from the Pumphouse block of Dijon 113 and 115 planted in 1994. 2017 is a magnificent vintage for Oregon in a classic sense rather than a “riper is better” sense, and these wines have beautiful delineation, nuance, and a vibrant core of fruit. 73 cases total, 68 for sale…750ml bottles, not liters.
2017 Berserker Cuvee: 6-pack $180. 12 btls case $300
Normal retail $480
These components are still in barrel, will bottle in June, can be picked up after July 1st, or will ship in the fall.
