Release of the 2014 Harper Voit Antiquum Pinot Noir.
We are excited to announce the release of the 2014 Harper Voit Antiquum Pinot Noir. If you have had the pleasure of consuming the Antiquum vineyard in the past, then you already know you are in for a nice treat.
Antiquum Farms is located in the South Willamette Valley on a thin variation of bellpine soil. It is upwards of 800 feet in elevation, making it a suitable yet unique site for growing Pinot Noir.
Stephen Hagen, owner and farmer of Antiquum Farms is obsessed with growing the best wines possible. Drew and Stephen have been working together since 2009, and we could not be happier with the results of the fruit that lands on the crush deck. The work that both Stephen and Drew put forth into the vineyard and the wine are clearly reflected in the wine.
The wine is dense in color with an intense fruit forwardness on the nose. On the palate, it reflects the high skin to berry ratio of the berries with a rich, tropical acidity. This wine is very distictive in character.
