TWILL CELLARS WILLAMETTE VALLEY PINOT NOIR 2018Not specified
Organic viticulture and low-intervention winemaking are the twin defining features of Oregon's Twill Cellars.
A specialist in Syrah, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, the winemaking is based on an elevage of between 18 to 22 months for all wines, and minimal SO2 and enzyme additions.
It leads in this case to a Pinot of "rich colour and a vibrant, bright, cherry aroma with a floral hint - a very attractive nose" according to the judges.
"It has an earthy mushroom beetroot character and it works really nicely with some oak on the palate, tannins and structure. It's well developed but can age. Classic and elegant".
