$44.99 $39.99

“Our 2018 Pinot Noir opens with vibrant floral notes, savoury brown spice and earthy notes on top of a core of red cherry that flows through the aroma. On the palate, supple and layered, bright red cherry notes introduce the wine. As the wine dwells on the palate layers unfurl, revealing silken texture. Fine tannins rise gracefully and are slowly displaced by a tang of acidity and more vibrant red cherry notes on the long finish.”

—Matt Dicey, Winemaker

Description

For a full expression of terroir, we co-fermented different clonal lots from the same vineyard, while keeping vineyards separate. About 75% of our ferments were de-stemmed only; the remaining quarter contained 15-60% whole clusters. Fermentation with indigenous yeasts lasted an average of 7 days with daily punch downs. The wine stayed on skins for a further 7-9 days post-dryness, after which it was pressed off to barrel where it resided on full lees for 12 months. It underwent malolactic fermentation in the spring, was racked out of barrel in late autumn and filtered but not fined prior to bottling.
