Amphora Trousseau Noir, Beckham Estate Vineyard 2021

This is the second vintage of the Beckham’s estate-grown trousseau. Made naturally, without chemicals, yeast or refinements, it’s a punchy, vivacious mouthful of boisterous berry fruits, sleek amphora textures and mineral bite. This is an autumnal delight.

In 2004, Andrew, a ceramics artist and High School ceramist teacher and his wife Annedria, purchased land on the Parrett Mountain in the Chehalem Mountains AVA near Sherwood, to build a studio for Andrew’s budding art career. They were inspired by their neighbours with 20-year-old vines to begin growing Pinot Noir. In late winter of 2005, they began clearing 60-year-old Douglas Fir trees and began to plant the first two acres of self-rooted and dry-farmed Pinot Noir vines. Each year they made progress and to date they have 28 acres with 6.5 acres planted to 4 clones of Pinot Noir and a further acre planted to Riesling. Another 7 acres of North American rootstock were planted in 2014 with plans to graft to Chardonnay, Gamay, Trousseau and Sauvignon.
