Maysara Winery 3 Degrees
Pinot Noir 2015
Momtazi Vineyard, McMinnville Oregon
In the wine biz you constantly hear winemakers talk about the fruit source and this my friends is an amazing property. Mahmood (Moe) and Flora Momtazi were immigrants to the US from Iran in the 1980s when they bought this abandoned wheat farm in the valley. Today their fruit is highly sought after. This bottling is sourced from the estate in McMinnville, and is handcrafted by the three Momtazi sisters and named for their collective "three degrees" reflected in the wine: elegance, finesse, and balance. The property is the first to be Demeter Certified Biodynamic® grower-producer in the Northwest, farming absolutely free of pesticides or chemicals and implementing the rules of biodynamics in the winery, too.
