75% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay
We have loved our varietal Chardonnay and Pinot Noir Johan bottlings and decided in 2018 to experiment with a co-ferment of both grapes utilizing the technique of "carbonic maceration", a style and fermentation typical to wines made in the Beaujolais region in France. The result was fantastically interesting and has often deserved a special bottling.
Along with notes of stewed strawberries and a touch of wet flinty rock, the wine also has a light and elegant floral streak, connecting it to the art on the label by Portland-based artist, Camille Shu's "Tulips"
