Winemaker is Luke Wyler. The grapes are from Gillirose Vineyard in Elkton, Oregon. The apple cider is from organically farmed apples farmed in orchards located in Hood River, Oregon. Both the Pinot Gris and Riesling were direct pressed together and co-fermented until dry. The cider was received as pressed juice and wild fermented with native yeasts until dry. The blend was then put together and bottled under pressure to carbonate the wine. Orchard fruits abound in the aromatics and flavors of this wine with the cider component having a strong influence on the pallet. Chimera is named for the mythical three headed monster, serving as an inspiration for the three ingredients building the blend. Taste of Apple, Pear, Honey, Wildflower.
