About The Wine
The Willamette Valley in Oregon is ground zero for complex, alluring, powerful Pinot Noirs. The ridiculously talented Kelley Fox emphasises these famous regional characters through a biodynamic prism, with a range of Pinots that brim with life and length.
The Ahurani is sourced from the biodynamic Momtazi vineyard but is a touch lighter and more ethereal than the main Momtazi release. It is named after a Persian water goddess, celebrating the abundance of natural springs in the vineyard.
Black cherry, plum and undergrowth flavours are underpinned by tangy acidity and the once-hefty tannins have been integrating beautifully the last few years. 2015 was a hot year but this is wine of tremendous life.
The end result is a wine just entering its perfect drinking plateau, and that will make you feel better for having drunk it.
About Kelley Fox
Kelley Fox began her eponymous label in 2000 after leaving her PhD studies in biochemistry for a hands-on life in wine.
Her winemaking style is highly influenced by the time she spent alongside the late David Lett of The Eyrie Vineyards, a legendary figure and one of the pioneers of the Oregon wine industry.
She makes small batches of Pinot Noir from carefully, biodynamically tended vineyards. Her wines show finesse and drinkability across the range, with the voice of each vineyard ringing out true from each cuvee.
