2021 Achelous

Named for a Greek river god, this is our first bottling of Mondeuse. Johan VIneyard's geology was totally molded by the Missoula Floods that shaped the entire region. Johan sits directly on the Van Duzer Corridor, a natural channel to the ocean, cut by the glaciers and flood waters and leaving varied and diverse mineral deposits in the trail. Johan is on eof the only known sites in the Willamette Valley that has deposits of granite, as well as erratic bassalt boulders, a hard packed marine sediment base layer, and silty volcanic loa,. It is very different from Mondeuse's home region of Savoie in France, known for higher granite mountains and more continental climate, we were curious to see how that impacted the varietal characteristics. Turns out Mondeuse has a very significant varietal stamp and for lack of better description, this wine is very Mondeusey. Red and blue fruited, medium to light bodied, wit a lot of sweet botanicals and herbs. Tannins are fine, acid is fresh and there is an abundance of fruits and herbs.
