WildAire is a small, boutique winery specializing in Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from some of the premiere vineyards in the Willamette Valley. Our focus is to create elegant wines that capture the essence of the site and the vintage. The gold WildAire Triskele is the Celtic symbol for Wind, Water, and Earth. It represents our Irish heritage and our commitment to sourcing grapes from sustainable growers.
Scented with crushed raspberries, this exceptional value carries that same intensity and freshness etched deeply into the palate. Some darker fruits hang around the perimeter, as the wine lingers through a graceful, slightly warm finish. Residual hints of sea-salt caramel wrap it up nicely (93 Points for the WildAire 2014 Timothy Pinot Noir).
The blend is a two-clone mix of 777 and Pommard, and it captures a range of delicate, well-defined flavors. Raspberry, cherry, light char, smoke, pepper, bitter herb, vanilla and camomile tea come rolling through. (94 Points for the WildAire 2014 Yates Conwill Vineyard Pinot Noir)
Focused, expressive, deep, dark and generous, with a mouthful of black licorice–accented blackberry and currant flavors that jet through a lithe, deftly balanced and long finish. (93 Points for the WildAire 2012 Timothy Pinot Noir)
A captivating wine loaded with blueberry, blue plum, black raspberry and a touch of violets. One-third new French oak brings a vein of chocolate. The balance is impeccable. Drink this with enjoyment immediately, or cellar it through 2025. (94 Points for the WildAire 2012 Shea Vineyard Pinot Noir)
In the world of rare, single-vineyard Oregon Pinots, this is a relative bargain. The fruit delivers the subtle complexity and detail you hope for but don’t always find in single-vineyard bottles...It’s a dense and thought-provoking wine that rewards close attention. (92 Points for the WildAire 2012 Zenith Vineyard Pinot Noir)
WildAire welcomes virtual tastings by appointment, hosted by the winemaker. Each appointment is about an hour in length and features topics such as: winemaking philosophy, vintage, site, tasting notes and fantastic conversation.
