Unit price  per 

Notes from the Dep team: This taut, racy Pinot was just released and craves an hour or so in the decanter or perhaps 6 months+ in your cellar/wine fridge.

Yields: 3-4 tons/acre

Soil Type: Lima Silt and Loam

Age of Vines: 25 years old

Vinification Method: Grapes are manually harvested. The bunches are mostly destemmed, with some stems added back in and a small portion of whole clusters in 1 ton open top fermenters.

The wine ferments in about 2-3 weeks and is then moved to 60 gallon 4-20 year old Hungarian oak barrels for about 10 months on gross lees and is then blended back together. The wine is unfined and unfiltered.

Bloomer Creek is a true pioneer in natural winemaking in New York State, more specifically in the Finger Lakes Region. If you so much as mention working organically to New York winemakers, you will hear again and again that is an impossible feat, much as the first natural winemakers in the Loire valley and Burgundy heard from their peers. In spite of this, Kim Engle and Debra Bermingham have been crafting beautiful examples of natural wine anyway.
