From the Winery:
Pinot Noir is a difficult grape to grow, as it requires much maintenance and care throughout the growing season. Winemakers the world over struggle with this varietal, but when done well it is amongst the richest and most complex wines the world over. A number of our vintages of Pinot Noir are award winners, making us a premium producer. Our select vineyard locations are also some of the oldest and most fertile in the region.
This Pinot Noir has been harvested from very low yielding vines, in order to enhance the elegant nature of the grape. The berries are sorted and whole pressed very gently. We then use a combination of new and mature oak to round out the palate and add additional structure. The nose is full of cherry, raspberry, earth tones and toasty oak. The mouth feel is complex and warm, with good texture. The tannins are silky and soft, making this an approachable wine in its youth.Pinot Noir is a varietal that pairs well with food because it is not overstated. Meats such as game or rare cuts are perfect for the soft texture of this wine, though it also pairs beautifully with fish or light pasta dishes.
