Product Description

The goal behind the Estate bottling is to make a wine that is representative of the entire farm as a whole. We achieve this by selecting small parcels of fruit from every combination of rootstock/scion, slope, soil profile, and vine age on the property. We keep all lots separate through vinification and aging to evaluate and learn how each parcel performs over the different vintages. We then bring them together for a harmonious blend in the bottle, full of nuance and complexity. This bottling is always the most representative of the growing year and is the most accurate representation of Johan Vineyards’ true terroir. This Pinot Noir was made from all 10 clones of Pinot Noir grown in our estate vineyard. The grapes were fermented using exclusively native yeast (both primary and malolactic), with approximately 50% whole-cluster fermentation. The wine was aged for 10 months in French oak barrels, 42% of which were new. Alcohol 13.50% Located in Oregon’s Willamette Valley, within the Van Duzer Corridor AVA, Johan Vineyards is an 85-acre certified-Biodynamic Estate winery. Our goal is to create a self-sustained holistic farm system with the energy to produce an honest expression of itself, to share with others. The team consists of an eclectic group of winegrowers, led by head winemaker Morgan Beck. Each individual brings equal passion from distinctly different contexts; through constant collaboration and conversation we find synergy, resonance, and a greater truth. Since establishment of Johan Vineyards in 2005, we have expanded our acreage to include a wide array of varieties, while striving to maximize clonal diversity among more established varieties such as Pinot Noir. We are equally excited about the potential of the more esoteric plantings on our site as we are about making more forward-thinking, age-worthy expressions of Chardonnay. We maintain a long-term view both in the vineyard and the cellar, nurturing a healthy, diverse microbiological system in our soil and producing wines that are alive and capable of evolving over many years. One aspect of this future-oriented approach is our openness to experimentation. While many New World winemakers take inspiration from their Old World counterparts, we cherish the ability to continually discover our unique place in the context of world wine. As we grow and mature with our farm, we are constantly reevaluating our process in order to best shepherd and represent our farm individuality.
