J.K. Carriere Glass White Pinot Noir 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

"Vineyard: These Pinot Noir grapes came from Temperance Hill's 31-year-old Flat Block, Rocky Slope, and Triangle Block - three blocks from one of the best organic, old-school, old-vine vineyards in Oregon. "Soil: A mix of volcanic soils from the different sites. "Vinification: Whole cluster pressed Pinot noir, barrel fermented to absolute dry using a long, slow, low-temperature, wild-yeast regimen to promote vineyard characters and preserve fleeting fruit esters. "Aging: Aged in older French oak barrels. Racked once and filtered prior to bottling "Notes: Chardonnay lees are added mimicking Champagne methodologies from 100 years ago to strip color and broaden an earthy mid-palate. The wine is similar to a rose Champagne without the bubbles." - Distributor's Notes
