|Article number:||Bloomer Creek Pinot Noir 2014|
|Availability:||In stock (3)|
A true trailblazer in natural winemaking in New York State, specifically the Finger Lakes region, Bloomer Creek proves that producing delectable wines while working organically is not an impossible feat, even in New York's challenging climate. (The first natural winemakers of Burgundy and the Loire Valley in France also heard similar protestations.) Kim Engle and Debra Bermingham have been crafting beautiful examples of natural wine without the use of insecticides or herbicides, farming organically for over 30 years. Fungal disease is controlled by the use of sulfur for powdery mildew and copper for downy mildew. Seaweed/fish and compost formulations are sprayed to aid in disease resistance and vine health. Native yeast-fermented, unfined and unfiltered, this pinot is Burgundian in profile. Light and delicate, with mildly tart cranberry and cherry fruit, this versatile red is cleansing and refreshing. Organically grown, low-intervention, vegan.
