LIGHT / BRIGHT REDS

Light / bright reds - PINOT NOIR, Planet Oregon. Willamette Valley, Oregon, USA

2016 PINOT NOIR, Planet Oregon. Willamette Valley, Oregon

Bin: 434
Alcohol Percentage: 13.6%
Area: Oregon is the cool climate state north of California and south of Washington State. Wet winters and hot (but not scorching) summers make for a green, lush landscape where the gentle rolling hills of the Willamette Valley feel very European.
Grape Variety: 100% Pinot Noir, fermented in fairly traditional manner, with just a tiny proportion of 'whole clusters', and matured for a few months in French oak (but no new barrels)
Producer: Oregon is a very environmentally aware state and the wine industry definitely plays its part in that, with lots of organic vineyards.
Planet Oregon is a project of Soter Vineyards (Tony Soter is a highly renowned winemaker) with the express intention of supporting the environment. All proceeds go the Oregon Environmental Council.
The wine however is certified 'Sustainable', rather than organic. Sustainable is an over-used word nowadays, but in the US there is a serious scheme to certify good vineyard practice. To be a fully organic wine in America is tricky (as no sulphur additions are allowed during winemaking) so sustainable is often the best option. All grapes are sourced from growers that are one or all: Organic, Biodynamic, LIVE or Food Alliance certified - and all of whom meet the 'Salmon Safe' criteria in the process.
Vintage: 2016 100% Pinot Noir, fermented in fairly traditional manner, with just a tiny proportion of 'whole clusters', and matured for a few months in French oak (but no new barrels).
Old Bridge Rating: Easy, delicious, fresh, lively Pinot
