About EZY TGR Pinot Noir

EZY TGR Pinot Noir is classic Willamette Pinot – fresh strawberry and dark ripe berries. Cherry cola notes begin to emerge as it opens up in the glass, followed by dried rose and black tea. The palate is soft, and medium-bodied, with elegant silky tannin. This is a fresh, easy style of Willamette Pinot.

Single vineyard Pinot noir from a moderately warm site that sits almost exactly on the 45th parallel. Soil composition is framed by volcanic basalt, which consistently yields Pinot Noir with a dominant red cherry aromatic. Persistent afternoon winds in this area help to develop thicker skins, consequently, Pinot Noir has more structure on the palate.

Destemmed Pinot Noir was placed into a stainless steel tank where primary fermentation takes place. Daily remontage (pump over) was used to maximize fruit aromas while tannin extraction was moderate. The stylistic goal of production is to capture as much fruit complexity as the vineyard can give, and yield a soft, silky palate.

About Ovum Wines

Founded by husband-and-wife duo John House and Ksenija Kostic in 2011, Ovum is a celebration of the diverse expressions of Oregon Riesling. After years of learning the intricacies of the Willamette Valley while working together at Chehalem, John and Ksenija set off to further investigate the myriad terroirs of Oregon through the lens of Riesling, and now source fruit from through the state. They have found sites with blustery Pacific winds, extreme diurnal shifts, and rocky, well-draining soils.

To emphasize the idiosyncrasies of these vineyards, all of Ovum’s wines see the same practices in the cellar: natural fermentations, no additions or subtractions except for SO2, extended lees contact of 8-9 months – all in neutral barrels of acacia and oak, as well as Nomblot concrete eggs. The resulting wines are textured and concentrated, driven by minerality, and framed by unwavering acidity. Ovum’s work is among the most compelling white winemaking we have encountered in our search throughout the Pacific Northwest.
