2021 Division Chardonnay “Un” 2x

A balanced triumph of dense flavor and lithe weight.

An incredible vintage and a new chapter of greatness after a very challenging 2020 vintage, we truly couldn’t be more pleased with the 2021 Chardonnay “Un” wine. The aromatics quickly draw you in and are bathed in a deeply intoxicating melange of floral chamomile, quince, and flint. The palate delivers the goods too and is both dense in flavor and lithe in weight at the same time. The textural balance is spot on this vintage, a trait we believe defines our wines. Drink up and enjoy now or wait a few months or years to taste what should be a splendid evolution.

2020 Division Chenin Blanc “Inondé” 2x

We bid adieu to the old-vine Chenin at Willard Farms with one of the brightest spots of the 2020 vintage with a wine ready to test time.

Opening the last vintage of our Chenin Blanc “Inondé” from 2020 fills a complete picture of why this site has made such special Chenin for us since 2013. The aromatic presence is all CHENIN! Loaded with a waxy and mineral richness that immediately draws you in. The fruit is all honey-covered peach and the beautiful tension of acidity to fruit defines the capacity of Chenin Blanc and why we love it so much. With only a few barrels of this made, we are going to savor this one for as long as possible and are confident some cellaring will pay off in spades.

2021 Division “Polka Dots” Pétillant Naturel

Delicious, bright and easy drinking fruity bubbles. We love them and you will too.

Juicy and spritzy, we simply love how much this pet-nat is the perfect accompaniment to backyard hangs, parties on the beach, or just about any setting that bubbles will set the mood for. The classic Gamay strawberry character dominates the show and we believe we nailed the bubbles just right this year on this light pink party wine!

2021 Gamine Grenache 2x

A gorgeous Grenache layered with complexity.

This 50% whole cluster carbonic (in cement) 50% traditional ferment brings out the best in the Mae’s vineyard site and its pink granite soils. Pressed off and aged back in the cement it was fermented in plus a neutral barrel, the style typifies tension, depth and grace. Unfiltered, unfined, and just a little so2, Voila! Luxardo cherry and crushed plums dance with an anise spice and a base of wet slate. This wine has structure and depth with lots of fruit volume and intrigue.

2021 Division Pinot Noir “Deux” 2x

A crown jewel of the 2021 vintage. Single-site Pinot from one of the absolute best vineyards in the U.S.

Sometimes even we say WOW! The balance of savory, fruit, acidity, and tannin are all there and our style founded on texture in the wine is clearly in place. Brimming in briny-covered red fruits, the wine is classic Pinot meant for a long future. We look forward to watching this wine evolve for many years to come, but will happily enjoy this early drinking window.  

2019 Division Cabernet Franc “Granit” 2x

Delicate yet muscular. Earthy yet approachable. Endless enjoyable.

We love Mae’s Vineyard (part of the Quady North Vineyards) in the Applegate Valley AVA in southern Oregon, and have worked with the grapes as the sole component of our Loire clones, dominated by a base of Cabernet Franc. Grower/Owner Herb Quady’s Mae’s Vineyard block slopes southeast into the Applegate Valley in one of the prettiest spots we’ve seen in the state. Loamy/clay and marine sediment overlay a large broken granite slab (yes granite!), which makes this a truly distinctive site to work with. Pop, pour, and pair with fine cuisine.

2015 Division Pinot Noir “Quatre”

A delicious Pinot from an unusually dry vintage in the PNW.

We are very pleased by how approachable, yet complex the wine was in its youth – likely due to it’s young vine nature. This very small “Quatre” cuvée was aged in French Oak; one single one-year old barrel and one neutral for 10 months, without any racking. The wine is minerally intense, layering in boysenberry and mushrooms. The fruit lends itself to the blue spectrum and the palate is demonstrating really nice textural weight and well-resolved tannins.
