Winemaking - Fruit was primarily sourced from the Delta region of California. A pre-fermentation cold soak was followed by fermentation in closed-top fermenters. Post-fermentation maceration took place at a warmer temperature to extract good colour and ripe tannins. A small portion of the wine was barrel aged to add some oak complexity, but most was kept in stainless steel tanks to retain freshness and purity of fruit.
What it tastes like - An elegant and well-balanced Pinot Noir, offering juicy flavours of raspberry and strawberry, accented beautifully with a touch of white pepper. It is medium-bodied in style with a bright and lingering finish.
