winemaker's notes

"Our Dundee Hills Estate Pinot Noir captures and expresses the delicate fruit characteristics associated with this varietal, and we balance that with structure and age-ability. In order to achieve this balance we combine a couple of key distinctive winemaking techniques. We increase structure and complexity in the mouthfeel through a lengthy post-fermentation maceration making up about 70% of this blend. To retain the pureness of the pinot noir fruit characters expressed early in fermentation, the other 30% has limited skin contact by removing the wine from the skins immediately following fermentation. Our entire Estate is represented in this cuvee with a percentage of each block coming together in a single blend."
