OREGON PINOT NOIR
Although produced identically to the Tasmanian Dr Edge Pinots the Vineyard location and farming is wildly different in Oregon. Organic, Biodynamic with 100% leaf pluck in the fruiting zone and zero sulphur spray in the vineyard in some instances. Cinnamon oil works. Anyway, with all this, different soil, rough prevailing winds plus the fact that its a little warmer in Oregon than Tasmania, the result is big, tannic, rich and funky as f&*k Pinot Noir…. even at 12.8% Alcohol. Enjoy the trip!
