2012 Pinot Noir Heritage
Sourced from the first Pinot Noir planted in our estate vineyard in 1984, this block is composed of 100% Pommard clone, own-rooted vines.
4 barrels produced
18 months in 25% new French Oak barrels
The grapes were harvested by hand and 75% destemmed to 1.5-ton bins. After an 8-day cold soak, fermentation began. The vats were pumped over and punched down twice daily until dry, then pressed. The wine settled overnight, then racked to 25% new French oak barrels for 18 months to age until bottling.
