Expressions of Pinot noir: Adapting to Vineyard Site Differences
Winemaking Breakout Session
What impact does vineyard location have on Pinot noir grape and wine composition? How will those impacts be shifted by a changing climate? This session will describe the findings of a five-year winemaking study of site impact using Pinot noir (clone 667) planted on three rootstocks. A replicated winemaking study that included formal sensory analysis showed that site and vintage significantly impacted wine color, aroma and varietal expression. Three winemakers will discuss the presented research and describe their own experiences with two of the vineyards included in the study.
