We are a big fan of Pinot noir, it was one of the wines we first learnt about on a visit to Beaun, so we were very excited to be offered a taste of this stunning Pinot Noir. Full of summer fruits, beautiful mineral notes and a nice long finish. This is another great example of a Cali Pinot noir and very limited in the UK.
Much of our winter rain came late, with almost 12 inches in March alone. With a very warm spring, the vines were running about three weeks early heading into the summer months. July and August were cooler than average, with foggy mornings, mild sunny afternoons and no severe heat spells. Vineyard temperatures rose again in September and harvest dates were early by about two weeks. The heat in the spring and again in the fall provided welcome bookends to the mild summer. The grapes benefited from increased hang time and showed fantastic character development.
