The Joel Gott 2019 Oregon, Willamette Valley Pinot Noir has aromas of black cap raspberries, cranberries and pomegranate with notes of cedar. On the palate, bright red fruit flavours and acidity lead to soft, velvety tannins on the mid-palate and a long, delicate. finish.
After harvest, fruit from each vineyard was hand-sorted and de-stemmed. The wine was fermented in open-top fermenters and punched down twice daily. This gentler and more traditional form of cap management helps to retain the soft tannin structure of Pinot Noir. After fermentation, the fruit was gently pressed in a basket press which results in softer, more elegant tannins. The wine was then aged for approximately one year in 25% new French oak and 75% one-to-three-year-old French oak
