Beckham Estate Vineyard is perched on the flank of Parrett Mountain in Oregon’s Chehalem Mountains AVA. 

The A.D. Beckham wines  are a convergence of two passions- ceramics and wine. The terra cotta amphorae used to make these wines are handcrafted in Andrew’s studio on our vineyard.

Harvest: September 2018  

Alc: 13.5%

Syrah and Viognier: 83% Syrah and 17% Viognier from 

AVA: Applegate Valley

Fermentation: Syrah and Viognier fruit was de-stemmed and the Viognier fruit was partially pressed with a portion of juice removed and used in another blend. The remaining Viognier juice and skins were added to the Syrah resulting in an approximate 83% Syrah and 17% Viognier co-ferment in amphora with no added commercial yeast or SO2 additions. 

Cellaring: After primary fermentation the wine was pressed and aged 50% in amphora and 50% in neutral French oak barrels for another 10 months. Minimal S02 at bottling. 

Bottled un-fined and unfiltered
