Soter Brut Rose Mineral Springs 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"Beautiful, medium rose color with noteworthy clarity. A fine bead in the glass is pronounced, with aromas of cranberry, huckleberry and baked apple at once pleasing. On the palate, the wine is immediately expressive, and quite dry with tantalizing minerality, yet fresh and juicy all at the same time. Additional flavors of bing cherry, raspberry, and crème brulee abound, along with baking spices and fresh bread. The mouthfeel is creamy, yet brisk, with a crisp, refreshing finish that isn’t short on length. Hailing from the cooler 2010 vintage, the wine has real precision and focus with intensity that combines a sense of seriousness with elegance all at once. An altogether engaging and complex Brut Rose, that while delicious today, will also improve in the bottle over the next 2-3 years under ideal cellaring conditions." Winery

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
