This wine would be a talking point at a dinner party. An exceptional wine from Oregon, United States. This wine is meaty, smoky, full-bodied with beautiful aromas of violets, dried lavender and earth.
The A.D. Beckham wines are a convergence of two passions- ceramics and wine. The terra cotta amphorae used to make these wines are handcrafted in Andrew’s studio on our vineyard. Syrah and Viognier fruit was de-stemmed and the Viognier fruit was partially pressed with a portion of juice removed and used in another blend. The remaining Viognier juice and skins were added to the Syrah resulting in an approximate 83% Syrah and 17% Viognier co-ferment in amphora with no added commercial yeast or SO2 additions. After primary fermentation the wine was pressed and aged 50% in amphora and 50% in neutral French oak barrels for another 10 months. Minimal S02 at bottling.
