Helioterra Barrel Event with Anne Hubatch

November 14 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm

We’ve done it again!

We’ve sourced a Vinum55 exclusive wine- just for you!

Join us for a Helioterra tasting with owner + winemaker Anne Hubatch!

Did you know that every year we travel to Willamette, Oregon to attend the annual Pinot Noir barrel auction? The Pinot Noir Auction is a trade-only auction honoring the pioneering spirit of the Willamette Valley. For two days, industry influencers attend a series of special tastings and gatherings, culminating in a live auction.

Guests have the opportunity to acquire an exceptional lot of one-of-a-kind Pinot Noir and an unforgettable impression of the Oregon wine community. All proceeds from the auction support the marketing, branding and education efforts of the Willamette Valley Wineries Association.
Well…..
We went.
We tasted.
We bought.
We conquered.
And now our super special, one-of-a-kind barrel has been bottled and we are BEYOND excited to share it with all of you! Attend any one of our events, across all three locations, for the opportunity to taste our Vinum 55 exclusive Pinot Noir, along side the rest of Anne’s incredible line up.

5 cases. 60 bottles. THAT’S IT. Made just for our Vinum 55 members! No one in the world will have an opportunity to taste or buy this wine!

About Helioterra

Helioterra Wines is a small, artisan producer of Northwest wines. Our wines are pretty, elegant and graceful in style. Winemaker Anne Ebenretier Hubatch partners with exceptional Oregon and Washington vineyard growers to craft wines that demonstrate the best that the Northwest offers. Anne’s winemaking style is focused and precise; yet with a gentle, minimalist approach. Our grapes are picked to capture peak flavor and fermented with little manipulation. Our reds are fermented with native yeasts and aged for a year in French oak barrels; unracked. Our whites are whole cluster pressed and fermented with a variety of yeasts in a mix of neutral barrel, stainless steel and concrete egg. The name Helioterra draws on geological inspirations, symbolizing Heliolite, the Oregon state gemstone (more commonly known as Sun Stone). Helio and Terra combine the Greek words for sun and earth, natural partners for grape growing.

Vinum 55 Exclusive Wine 

2016 Helioterra ‘Barrel 21’ Lias Vineyard Pinot Noir

Tasting Notes:

Helioterra Pinot Noirs are a study in elegance, balance and grace. This single barrel from Lias Vineyard was the best barrel of our cellar. It exemplifies beautiful red fruit notes, layered with dusty sandalwood and a touch of bergamot and black tea, finishing with a lingering of red raspberry and graham. Lia’s Vineyard is in the Chehalem Mountains.

Our block at Lias Vineyard was 115 planted in 1999 on 101-14 rootstock. Vine spacing is five feet with nine foot rows. Planting is on a bench that has a gentle southeast slope. Soil is a transitional section of the vineyard with some volcanic origin, Jory soil, but predominantly sedimentary soil. There are a lot of rocks and boulders in this section of the vineyard. While 115 clone is capable of producing a complete wine, the variability of soils and exposure in this block lends complexity to this single clonal election. This barrel #21 of Pinot Noir was 20% whole cluster and native yeast fermented. It was pumped over once and then punched down once a day. It was then aged 13 months in a neutral French oak barrel. This wine is unfined and unfiltered.
