So What?

"It was the promise of great wines that first drew Paul and Eileen Gerrie, owners of Cristom Vineyards, to Oregon. They conceived of a place where the succulent Pinot Noir grape could achieve its fullest expression – complex, hand crafted wines that are bold yet balanced: both powerful and elegant. Their wines evolve as they age, revealing ever greater richness and complexity with time. The abundance of soils and slopes in the hills of Oregon defined the Gerrie’s vision of world class Pinot Noir. The warm winds of summer held the promise of rich Chardonnay, the cool sunny autumn yielded tart Pinot Gris. Since the inaugural vintage in 1992, the Gerries, along with winemaker Steve Doerner, have been producing wines that are considered the benchmark in Oregon and have made Cristom, named after their children, Christine and Tom, a veritable household name." - Importer notes

Tech: 46% whole clusters of hand-harvested and hand-sorted fruit, 100% native yeast fermentation, 1-3 punch daily in 1-7 ton open-top fermenters, Gently pressed in a pneumatic bladder press and moved to barrel by gravity, Undergoes a full malolactic fermentation in barrel. 11 months in French cooperage, 21% new oak

"The first Pinot Noir of the vintage to be crafted, after multiple tastings of every individual barrel, "Mt. Jeff" defines the best of the Eola-Amity Hills. The 2022 Mt. Jeff is comprised of 73% Cristom Estate fruit from our five world-class vineyards – Paul Gerrie, Eileen, Jessie, Louise, and Marjorie Vineyards – one of the highest percentages of estate fruit in Cristom’s 28 vintages of crafting this iconic wine! 

This wine is a Cristom classic, 100% Pinot Noir, and exclusively from the Eola-Amity Hills. It embodies Cristom's hallmark style – marrying whole-cluster and native yeast fermentations and is unfined and unfiltered.

Tasting Notes: Vibrant fresh red fruit characters and 52% whole cluster fermentation parlay layered spice and fine tannin, the “Mt. Jeff” offers tremendous complexity of flavor and is showing exceptionally well in its youth." -Winery notes
