2020 Ovum 'Old Love' Willamette Valley, OR

$22

 

Texturally rich with ripe and juicy blood orange, salty lemon, geranium, lychee, and a refreshing herbal quality, inviting you to take another sip.

Established in 2011 by Ksenija and John House, Ovum was founded in hopes of producing Oregon white wines that are honest reflections of time and place. Our low intervention production method is a commitment to letting the vintage and vineyard shine, not the vintner. Fruit comes first - our top priority is finding farmers that share our beliefs, and then getting out of the way so their hard work can be tasted. Native ferments, no subtractions or additions, except for SO2 - extended lees contact 8-9 months, for textural complexity. 
"Old Love is a “method” Oregon white wine inspired by early 1800’s winemaking in Austria. After a soak on skins (diff for each site), the fruit is pressed (hard) into tank where native fermentation begins. Then, 35% of the juice in tank is racked into: amphora, Austrian cask, cement egg and neutral barrel. Then we wait a lunar cycle…
After 28 days or so, the wine in the vessels is added back to the wine in stainless steel. Once it is fully blended, we place 35% of the wine BACK into amphora, cask, egg and barrel. This process is repeated three times."
