Johan Vineyards NILS Pinot Noir Van Duzer Corridor 2019
The Nils bottling was created out of an interest to capture a specific expression from our estate. This barrel selection focuses on highlighting those barrels that exude characteristics of power and weight, leading to a more masculine expression of Pinot Noir from our site. The goal is to accentuate dark fruit and earthy base notes in the Nils bottling. With the Nils we seek power and elegance, through balance and complexity.
The grapes were fermented using exclusively native yeast (both primary and malolactic), with approximately 17% whole-cluster. The wine was aged for 19 months in French oak barrels, 18% of which were new.
