Our Wines.

Benza Vineyards Hillsboro Oregon Willamette Valley Winery
Benza Vineyards Oregon Pinot Gris

We have a simple belief that the land is the most important factor to producing an expressive wine. We treat it with kid gloves. We dry farm allowing the vines to send their roots deep for water, extracting intense flavors from our Laurelwood soil and underlying volcanic Jory soil. We use organic farming practices to keep nature in balance closer to the surface. Means more work for us. But we think it shows in the quality of the wine.

2017

Estate Pinot Gris

Picked from a superb corner of the estate by the owners, this Pinot Gris was fermented in stainless steel and neutral oak to coax out its latent liveliness and freshness.

A medium-bodied wine, it has more lusher flavors with a note of apricot, balanced by the wine’s natural acidity. The ultimate salmon wine, it pairs well with chicken too. Perfectly ready to drink now. Only 90 cases produced.

Estate Pinot Gris

Picked from a north-facing block of Pinot Gris which maintained its acidity while ripening. Fermented in 100% stainless steel to preserve fruit and freshness.

While technically dry there is a small amount of residual sugar balancing out the intensity of the acid and lending some textural weight. Aromatics run the gamut from citrus and tropical flowers to a more intense fig component.

 

Perfectly read to drink now. Only 85 cases produced.

Touch of Gold Estate Chardonnay

We went to extra lengths on this limited release Chardonnay as it’s named after our horse, Touch. Actually his full name is “Lucky Touch of Gold”.

Bottled from a single barrel of estate Chardonnay vines. Barrel fermented and on its lees for 16 months. Reflects the ripe characteristics of the vintage restrained by an early pick in order to maintain balance and acidity. A wine that can be enjoyed now but will improve with age. Touch would give this three neighs.

Very limited production of 25 cases.

Estate Pinot Noir

Picked from various estate blocks, this wine is a reflection of its place in 2018. The warm and very dry growing season led to wines of intensity. The wine was in barrel for 10 months comprised of 15% new French oak.

This wine shows the characteristics of the vintage with dark red fruit and earthy / spicy notes.  The wine has the guts to age for many years. A faithful representation of our property.

Three Tuxedos Reserve Pinot Noir

Lovingly named after our three tuxedo cats—from whence our bow-tie logo and notched label also derives, this selection comprises the best barrels of the vintage–40% new french oak.

The 2018 vintage produced dense wines in the dark red to black fruit spectrum with an earthiness enhanced by the savory characteristics of our Laurelwood soil. This wine will only get better in time.

Estate Rosé of Pinot Noir

Comprised entirely of Pinot Noir clone 115 from the highest part of the estate. This Rosé spent six hours on skins prior to pressing. The skin contact adds red-fruited aromatics and gives textural weight. 

Hints of citrus and tropical fruits yield to a dominant nose of fresh strawberries. Serve chilled as an accompaniment to food or on its own. A serious Rosé!

Only 85 cases made.

 

Also coming this Summer, our first traditional method sparkling wine!
