Established in 1974 by Pat and Joe Campbell on a secluded property in North Willamette Valley, Elk Cove Vineyards is one of Oregon's oldest and most respected wine producers. The winery's focus is on the Pinot "trilogy": Pinot Noir, Pinot Gris and Pinot Blanc. The first vineyards were planted on gentle and/or steep south facing slopes of the Chehelam Mountains planted on Willakenzie silty loam and Laurelwood red-shot volcanic soil with excellent drainage. Today their sustainably farmed vineyards cover 600 acres on four separate sites including 180 acres of mature vineyards from the Estate, Windhill, Mount Richmond and Five Mountain Vineyards. Winemaker Adam Campbell continues the family tradition of noninterventionist winemaking through proper site selection, meticulous vine management, low yields and gravity flow at the winery.

Tasting notes
Fresh aromas and flavors of tropical mango, guava and papaya are complemented by notes of jasmine and vanilla bean. This richly textured white ends with a full and balanced finish.

Technical notes
The fruit is hand-harvested from select hillside vineyards, whole cluster pressed and fermented at cool temperatures in small stainless steel tanks.
