Light straw in colour with golden hue. The bouquet shows linear notes of lime leaf, flint, ginger, jasmine and graham. The palate brings secondary notes of nectarine, peach and the almighty feijoa (the South American pineapple guava fruit). The feel no matter the fruit is mineral. The finish lingers with tangerine, peach, cream and lightly toasted grain nuances.

Founded by Darrel and Molly Roby, Twill Cellars began as a project to explore some of the most unique terroirs in the state of Oregon. The focus is on Syrah, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, three of the best varietals suited to these cool-climate regions that can also express the subtle or extreme variations in terroir from site to site. The Robys' only work with organically grown vineyards and utilize very low-impact winemaking techniques in the cellar - keeping the focus on the purity of the fruit and the natural characteristics coming out of the vineyard. What about the name 'Twill? This clever winery name is a word that encompasses many of the things Darrel, Molly and Chris are after in crafting their wines (think: a woven fabric, process of assembly, tension and strength of material). It is not just about the people, the particular vineyard, bottle, barrel, or vine clone, but it is rather about the composition of everything coming together as something thoughtfully crafted. It is a tapestry of many components, and Twill' seems to capture that philosophy just perfectly.
