Arterberry Maresh "Weber Vineyard"

Vintage: 2010

Description:   In 2008, Martha Maresh and Steve Mikami began construction on the Powell Hill Winery. Named after the original pioneer family who farmed the land, the winery sits at the highest point of Maresh Vineyard with a view to the Cascades. Completed in time for the 2011 vintage, it is the first of its kind on the farm. Well placed within a mile of all vineyards, this proximity allows more intimate knowledge of each particular site throughout the seasons and a greater understanding of the sense of places. Fruit is hand harvested, handled minimally and processed immediately. Sugar, acid or water additions have never been needed. Restrained extraction techniques and a preference for neutral French oak helps to highlight the purity of old vine fruit. An interest in judiciously exposing young wines to oxygen early helps achieve aromatic integration, fine texture, length and longevity. The wines are transparent and unadorned, all estate bottled, unfined and unfiltered.
