Planet Oregon Pinot Noir 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Our mission is to craft and bottle delicious young Pinot Noir that is fresh, silky and suggestive of Oregon summer fruits... cherries and berries of all kinds. We insist on sourcing from certified sustainable vineyards and bottle in a certified sustainable winery. Our prod- uct is honest and progressive; it is 100% Oregon Pinot Noir that is uninhib- ited by unfriendly pesticides, unecessary processing or pompous packaging. We encourage you to partake of this wine early, purchase often and share with people who appreciate the integrity of a local product produced with conscience and passion. Sustainably grown and produced Oregon Pinot Noir that is palatably priced to be enjoyed early and often. Planet Oregon is crafted to reach a broader audience and embodies the conscious choice we all have to endorse and support truly sustainable practices. $1 from the proceeds of every bottle sold in Oregon is pledged to the Oregon Environmental Council.

Soter Vineyards:
The site of Mineral Springs, located just east of the town of Carlton, is a source of great excitement to us. Planted to 15 acres of Pinot Noir in 2002 and 2003, and 17 acres of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in 2006, this 250-acre ranch is perched on a mesa with gentle slopes, with commanding views of the surrounding Yamhill-Carlton District.

The site of Mineral Springs, located just east of the town of Carlton, is a source of great excitement to us. Planted to 15 acres of Pinot Noir in 2002 and 2003, and 17 acres of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay in 2006, this 250-acre ranch is perched on a mesa with gentle slopes, with commanding views of the surrounding Yamhill-Carlton District. As a vineyard site, Mineral Springs has an extremely compelling confluence of prime exposure, and uniform, well-drained, pale sedimentary soils. Imagine half of an upside-down bowl facing due south - here the vines absorb the sun from an ideal aspect, from morning through twilight. Unlike many vineyards with small depressions and moist swales, this is a gentle, highly uniform slope. We have high expectations for the vineyard-designated Pinot Noirs and Sparkling Wine that will eventually emerge from this vineyard. Mineral Springs Vineyard is planted between 380 and 440 feet in elevation. Exposure ranges from southeast to west, with most acreage facing south and southwest. Our soils are crumbly, loamy, pale marine Keasey series sediments such as sandstone and fractured siltstone, mixed with clay. The topsoil layer is rather shallow in many places, and drainage is excellent. Read less
