About Vermeer Vineyard

Planted in 1997, this vineyard is comprised of two blocks; Pinot Noir in the upper block is primarily 115 Clones on 3309C rootstock, with the lower block to the east comprised of 146/152 Clone Pinot Gris, also on 3309C rootstock. The trelis is a VSP with 7' x 3.5' spacing and single canes are alternated each year along the fruiting wire. Depending on the weather year, the fruit has consistently come in at low sugar levels with a strong backbone of acidity - color of the pinot noir is often almost opaque it is so dark, with strong flavors of cherry. Stangeland owner and winemaker Larry Miller has purchased all of the grapes from the vineyard since the 2006 vintage, and has made several wines that have achieved scores of up to 92 points (2012 Vermeer Pinot Noir) from Steven Tanzer. Soil types are consistent with Nekia soil series, with low vigor observed in the vineyard. There is no irrigation, but the plants have shown little heat stress during even the toughest summer days with deep roots now accessing moisture in the fractured base material. The aspect is east facing, with approximately 4% slope; there are no issues with frost in the spring due to the slope, and due to prevailing breezes from the west, little powdery mildew pressure during the growing season. The vineyard has been managed by Rob Clark since 2000, and is managed consistent with the principals of the LIVE program for vineyard sustainability. However, the vineyard is not certified LIVE.
