The Royal Ann 2018 is a medium to dark-medium, red with some blue tones and lovely transparency that is also somehow opulent. True to the classic Maresh character, though, the nose and mouth are filled with sun-warmed strawberries, but with subtle spices. This wine is a queen. The length is very long and silky, and overall, there is a richness that is both noble and crackling with energy
About the Winery
Kelley Fox is one of the newest wineries created in Oregon. Established in 2007, this brand started off with producing only 100 cases. Within a decade, it has grown big enough to produce close to 3000 cases. The wines under this label are made from grapes grown in reputed and historic regions such as Maresh Vineyards, Momtazi Vineyard, Hyland, Freedom Hill Vineyard, Weber and Durrant Vineyard.
Located in the Dundee Hills, the first vines were planted here during 1970. The vines are located at an average altitude of about 500 to 700 feet. The pinot noir grapes grown here have a distinct texture because of the high quality of the Jory soil found in this region.
Thanks to the amazing history, natural extravaganza and the potential to produce intense fruits, the Maresh Vineyards are very popular in the Willamette Valley. Many winemakers source grapes from these vineyards for creating wines under their labels.
This is a Demeter-certified biodynamic vineyard located in the foothills of McMinnville. This place is replete with common and rare species of flora and fauna such as wild turkeys, goldfishes, herons, ducks, etc. The fruits grown here have a distinct mineral content.
Freedom Hill Vineyards
Known for its marine sedimentary soil, the Freedom Hill Vineyards are located in the Oregon Coast Range at the backdrop of the Eola Hills. The first vines were planted here during 1982. Pinot Blanc is the flagship fruit grown here. You will also find an abundant variety of Pinot Noir vines here. The average altitude of the vines here is in the range between 350 and 600 feet.
Since the year 2018, the Kelley Fox wines are being created in the winery of ADEA Wine Company. Kelley Fox and her team use only natural winemaking techniques to create the wines, as a result of which no additives or preservatives are used in the fermentation process.
