Hiyu Columbia Gorge Red Wine Tzum Lorelei Spring Ephemeral 2022

Cru Beaujolais meets Côte Rotie in this textural, elegant Gamay from Nate Ready and China Tressemer at Hiyu Wine Farm in Hood River, Oregon. It comes from a parcel of young vines on the upper slopes of Underwood Mountain, where the wind and elevation preserve every delicate aroma and flavor of the fruit. 

We recommend drinking immediately and decanting to get the full impact of Lorelei. Insanely juicy, driven by a rocky minerality and rippling acidity, it has the grip and texture of a polished Northern Rhône Syrah and the aromatics of a cru Beaujolais. You’ll get notes of early spring red cherries, raspberries, and an herbaceous throughline of lemony clover. Pair it with braised or roasted meats.
