Sunny aromas of raspberry, cranberry, cinnamon heart, almond essence and rose petal. Clean, vibrant, elegant and dry, it tastes of strawberry, green apple, cherry and clementine with herbaceous and mineral undertones.
Composed entirely of pinot noir, sourced October 8th from the winery’s founding vineyard, hand-picked in the early morning when the berries’ temperature was coolest. Grape sugars averaged 20.4° Brix.
The juice was gently pressed after only the briefest contact with the grape skins, and cool-fermented in a horizontal steel “milk tank”, designed to enhance the influence of lees. After twelve more weeks to clarify, the wine was bottled in December.
Only 56 cases of 750 ml bottles and 35 cases of the 1.5L Magnum format.
