2015 Mineral Springs 'Micha' Blanc de Noirs - NEW!
All profits donated to charity in honor of Michelle Soter
MINERAL SPRINGS RANCH (MSR) is a 240-acre Biodynamic farm and vineyard in the heart of Oregon wine country. Mineral Springs Vineyard consists of 40 acres of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay situated along the ridge-line of the property. The combination of respectful farming, ancient marine soils, and temperate climate, result in wines that are layered, nuanced, and captivating while expressing their singular place of origin.
This wine is a commemorative bottling inspired by and created for Michelle Soter. It is made from pure Mineral Springs Pinot noir from the best parcels and only in the best years. It is intended to acknowledge her natural beauty and would not be so if it were not also biodynamically farmed. The commission of this label is a tribute and token of her remembrance. Our inspiration was the study of sacred geometry where we hoped to capture the expression of radiant energy and the inner eye of self-knowledge. Our hope is it could be both intimate and expansive, as well as luminous and mysterious.
What is not immediately obvious to most observers is the imagery of a butterfly, and this serendipitous discovery adds levity and lightness as one imagines the beautiful creature taking flight to the next realm. All the profits from this inaugural bottling will be donated to charity in Michelle’s honor.
Label Artist Bruno Penabranca is a visual artist born and raised Brazilian, now based in New York. His work is a journey about chasing beauty and balance through the exploration of geometric patterns and psychedelic minimalism.
