2017 Johan Vineyard Pinot Noir
This wine is not available, but check out the 2018 Johan Pinot Noir
A lighter Pinot Noir with old world notes of hibiscus, sage salt, sandalwood and Chinese five spice, begging to be paired with a decadent and hearty dish.
Comprised of pinot noir grapes from Johan vineyard located in the Willamette Valley. The vines were planted in 2009 in glacial deposited silt-helvetia, and santiam soil. Johan Vineyard is farmed biodynamic.
This pinot noir has 2 clones in it: 50% Wadenswil, and 50% Pommard.
Only 100 cases produced!
A wet, cool spring delayed flowering until late June, which set the stage for a later harvest than the previous three vintages.
Hot, dry conditions prevailed through the summer, yielding heat spikes in August. With a larger than normal fruit set, the grapes enjoyed long hang time leading up to harvest. Conditions cooled and brought in scattered rains with the harvest, which began at Brooks on the 28th of September and ran through November 1st, almost returning to normal average harvest dates in the Willamette Valley.
The wines from the vintage show fresh fruit flavors and lively acidity. In all, it will be remembered as a classic vintage in Oregon!
