Demeter-Certified, Estate Grown Fruit

Johan Vineyards is a certified-Biodynamic estate vineyard and winery, located in the Van Duzer Corridor AVA. As winegrowers, we have a very intimate connection to our site. With each growing season, we mature and evolve with the farm and find ourselves continually refining our approach in order to develop a more honest and true farm individuality. Our winegrowing is guided by the objective to authentically interpret our farm’s identity through the creation of wine. We believe the sense of place, the essence of our farm, is best expressed through our deep commitment to Biodynamic farming practices, native-yeast fermentation, and minimal intervention in the cellar.

The objective of our Pinot Noir is to create a bottling that most accurately represents our sense of place in a given vintage. We carefully select parcels of fruit from every rootstock/scion combination, aspect, vine age, and soil profile, creating a collage of the diverse expressions of our vineyard through the lens of Pinot Noir. The 2017 included 57% whole cluster and after fermenting using native yeasts, spent 10 months in 28% new wood, with the remainder completing elevage in neutral french oak.

2018 "All Ewe Need Is Love," is a one-of-a-kind Pinot Noir release for a special cause. We created this special release of Pinot Noir as a way to raise money for our continued efforts to nurture our site and diversify our farm system. Every penny from the sales of this wine will go towards the development of infrastructure for our sheep and poultry project, as well as the improvement and scaling of our Farm Share, so we can offer the experience to more of our community in the future. It is a youthful and vibrant bottling of Pinot Noir, something of a rarity at Johan, which reminds us that Pinot Noir can be as whimsical and fun as the label suggests.

The varietal character of Grüner Veltliner is intense and highly unique. There is a range of fruit maturity with which this grape can be harvested to lend itself to an array of different styles. The resulting wines can vary from lean and herbal, to highly textured and exotic smelling, depending on the vineyards ability to ripen the fruit. Our site produces fruit that wants to be rich and exotic, producing significant texture while retaining focus and balance. We prefer this style for our own taste and encourage it by aging the wine in larger format oak puncheons for 10 months with full solids.

Our 2017 Chardonnay is a hollistic representation of our site through the lens of Chardonnay. This wine is a four-barrel blend of primarily high-acid non-dijon clones, with a smaller percentage of our fleshier dijon selections. After direct pressing, the juice was blended, and barreled down. They fermented and aged for 18 months in 50% first and second fill oak barrels and 50% neutral. The wine is laser focused on the palate with acid and salinity. The aromatics sing with fruit and oak working in balanced synergy. On our site, chardonnay yields one of the most expressive and impressive wines in any given vintage.

Our take on Pinot Noir Rosé. Not your usual pink wine. Our macerated 667 clone Pinot Noir is barrel fermented with native yeasts for just shy of a year, in pursuit of depth and weight. Handled with the same care as our traditional Pinot Noir, this wine will challenge your expectations of rosé.

The "Nils" bottling highlights power and concentration we find in certain blocks each vintage. 2015 had all of the qualities that predicate a perfect "Nils" vintage. With a higher proportion of destemmed berries (65%), the fruit sings with a bit more gusto, drawing attention to brooding dark fruit flavors and earth. We see more fruit tannin providing silky texture that will continue to soften with age.

"Three Barrel" is a blend of barrels that we find to be wildly expressive, exotic, and intriguing in each vintage. The selections are distinct each year, however we always aim for that same objective. Expect complex perfume and incense aromatics matched by tense acid and firm tannin on the palette. Built to age 12+ years, this wine will continue to stun so long as you keep yourself from drinking it!
