-5-slow’ philosophy on the whites is great because you are constantly fermenting, and the yeast is constantly eating the sugar and creating the carbon-dioxide to protect the wine. The Gruner barrels in the cellar now are still fermenting after a year and three months, have never seen any sulphur, and are amazingly complex. ◆ What does the future hold for Johan Vineyards?We are continuing to explore and seek to find the truest expression of our site. As of last spring, we introduced chickens and ducks to our vineyard system and have plans to bring sheep into the program this coming year. We would like to continue growing and sharing the biodynamic approach with our community. As for vineyard diversity, I keep saying we have 16 varietals now, we have plans to focus on growing the quantities of the wines that we are excited about, the Gruner, Blaufrankisch, and Melon de Bourgogne. Making more of these wines will allow more experimentation in the cellar within each grape. We continue to grow and evolve within our team just as the vines and wines evolve with each growing season. I’m so excited for what’s to come!Johan Vineyards Gruner Veltliner 2018Origin: Van Duzer Corridor, Willamette Valley, OregonVarietal: Gruner VeltlinerAlc. 12.2%RRP ¥4,200A complex and exotic aroma that brings out the phenolic aromas produced by skin maceration.
