J.K. Carriere "Glass" White Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir|Willamette Valley, Oregon

White Pinot Noir? Consider this a very light rosé; in southern France, this style is called "vin gris." As spring settles in, we're loading up on crisp, low-alcohol sippers like this gem from one of the finest winemakers in the Pacific Northwest.

Proprietor Jim Prosser has been crafting honest natural wines of character since 1999 in the Willamette Valley, near the Chehalem Mountains. The vineyards he works with are all sustainable, organic, or biodynamic, and all dry-farmed. The wines are fermented from wild yeasts with no fining or filtering. The result are acid-driven wines, with low alcohol, full of character, and perfect for weeknight aperitif hour or the dinner table.

In the bottle, it's bright and very floral, with green melon rind, potpourri, and a hint of musk that gives away its Pinot Noir traits. With more air the candied fruit starts to really emerge. The palate has a wonderfully rich texture, lip-smacking acidity and a perfectly dry finish. 

Jim Prosser says this "may be the best White Pinot Noir we’ve produced in our 15 years of doing so."

These are classic, real natural wines; they come with no sermon or pretense, just great wines that are good for the planet. In Jim's words, "We ensure the emperor will always be wearing his clothes when you open our bottles."
