Soter North Valley Vineyards, Pinot Noir Reserve Willamette Valley 2016Regular price $57.00 Save $-57.00
Variety: Pinot Noir
After 25 years as a consulting winemaker in Napa, Tony and wife/partner Michelle uprooted to move to the Yamhill-Carlton area in the late 90’s to focus on family and Soter Vineyards. The estate is named Mineral Springs Ranch, a woodland and grazeland oasis, furthering their dedication to winemaking. The couple is convicted in their beliefs of organics, biodynamics, and environmentalism—this is exhibited in their farming practices and on-site kitchen. While Soter Vineyards focuses on estate sites, the North Valley project focuses on the region, using “cru” worthy Pinot Noir sites while implementing the fine art of blending. Yamhill-Carlton is one of the major appellations in the Willamette Valley, Oregon.
Since this is a regional wine, the fruit is sourced from Yamhill-Carlton, Ribbon Ridge, Eola-Amity, and Dundee Hills; a tour of the region. The wine sees 40% new oak.
