2015 Carlton Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir

40.00

A beautifully situated 11-acre site, Carlton Hill’s east facing slopes pick up the early morning sun, lending gentle ripening and shady relief in the hot afternoons. Sustainably farmed, this vineyard consistently delivers outstanding Pinot Noir known for robust, red-fruited characteristics. Its weaves powerfully exotic elements with youthful tension, no doubt making this wine fascinating to watch unfold as the months and years pass. We love how the flash and forwardness compliment the more rustic, finessed wines in our portfolio.

Grapes were hand harvested (50% destemmed and 50% wholecluster) and cold soaked for 48 hours. The fermenters were warmed and continued uninoculated with twice daily punch-downs. Fermentation proceeded swiftly but soundly for 15-20 days and were pressed at dryness. Wines were racked to barrel separately and aged 18 months before racking and bottling.

After experiencing a record hot and plentiful year in 2014, 2015 was eager to stay in the vein of warm, dry, early and abundant. Great weather rode through bloom and fruit set and carried the crop all the way to harvest.
