Harvested September 9, 2015, this wine was fermented in two-ton fermenters and then moved to barrels, 30% of which were new French oak. It was aged in barrel 10 months and bottled September 24, 2016. 

Our 2015 Fairsing Vineyard Pinot noir Sullivan represents the east portion of the vineyard. The selections contained in this bottle are Pommard, Wadensvil and Dijon 777 with final alcohol of 14.2%. 

Fairsing Vineyard’s Pinot noir Sullivan is a stunning combination of Pommard, Dijon 777, and Wadenswil selections. 

We honored Mike McNally’s paternal grandmother Winifred Sullivan with this bottling. This wine has fresh and inviting aromas of strawberry and cherry with floral notes and a hint of caramel. Lovely flavors of raspberry and strawberry permeate with a touch of cola and a generous cherry finish.

Aged 10 months in 30% new French oak barrels with a limited production of 360 cases.

Wine Enthusiast

With a riper profile than the 2014, this vintage of this wine is instantly delicious and bursting with sweet cherry fruit. Full flavored and fruity, it finishes on lasting milk chocolate, sweet herb and cola notes.

Fairsing Vineyard is managed sustainably in Oregon’s Yamhill- Carlton American Viticulture Area (AVA) with 38 acres of Pinot noir and five acres of Chardonnay in production. 

The vineyard is nestled inside an 80-acre Certified Family Forest distinguished by biodiversity, varied topography, and panoramic views of the Northern Willamette Valley.  

Fairsing Vineyard is a certified member of the Low Input Viticulture and Enology (LIVE) Association, the Salmon Safe program and the American Tree Farm System.

Wine maker Robert Brittan's extensive winemaking experience ensures Fairsing Vineyard wines reflect the abundant beauty and complexity of the estate. 

Robert Brittan completed his education at UC Davis and moved to Napa Valley, where he crafted wines for Far Niente and Saint Andrews among others. After 16 years with Stags’ Leap Winery as Winemaker and Estate Manager, Robert headed north to fulfill his dream of making Pinot noir and Syrah from unique sites in cooler climates.

With over 40 years experience tending grape vines and crafting wines, Robert is the consulting winemaker for select vineyards in the Northern Willamette Valley.

Robert feels Pinot noir and Chardonnay lend themselves to many wonderful interpretations, depending on the soils and microclimates where they are grown.
