2012 Estate Pinot Noir

2012 Estate Pinot Noir


$ 150.00
Winemaker's Notes:  From our 7 ½ acres of Pinot Noir - Set was exceptionally good here at Wenzlau. The more generous 2012 growing season allowed for a much larger crop than we experienced in 2011. The ripe, full clusters allowed us the opportunity to work with more stems, maybe close to 20% in the finished cuvee.  All blocks of the vineyard are represented which are planted to clones 115, 667, and 2A all on Riparia rootstock.  After 15 months in barrel (30% new French oak), it was racked to tank for a 3 months and has been resting in bottle about 18 months. All the Pinot Noir finished malo. No acidification or chaptalization.

 

Description: The wine has hints of dried cherries and herbs, while maintaining a truly savory core.  The combination of low alcohol (12.5%) and full flavor, balanced with nice acidity make this wine pair well with a wide variety of food. A bit lighter bodied, due to the large crop, this is an easy drinking wine that can be enjoyed now or cellared for a few years.
