Estate-grown grapes planted in the mid-1980s
The grapes were harvested by hand, sorted, layered into a stainless tank, and sealed to undergo carbonic maceration. After 19 days of carbonic, the grapes were loaded into the press and fermented in stainless until dry. The wine was filtered before bottling.
Food Pairing Notes
Pair our 2023 Pinot Noir Nouveau with diverse dishes for a truly festive experience. The succulent flavors of roast turkey with cranberry sauce find a delightful complement in the bright acidity of our Pinot Noir Nouveau. In contrast, the cranberry sauce harmoniously bridges the fruitiness of the wine.

Additionally, herb-roasted root vegetables pair wonderfully with the wine, as the savory herbs and sweet, caramelized flavors find balance in the soft, approachable tannins of our Nouveau-style Pinot Noir. Enjoy chocolate truffles or raspberry tarts for a sweet finish, which perfectly complement the wine's luscious fruit notes. These pairings will elevate your holiday celebrations, making them even more memorable with the addition of our exceptional 2023 Pinot Noir Nouveau. Enjoy the festive season!
