2015 Estate Whole Cluster Pinot Noir

2015 Estate Whole Cluster Pinot Noir
Pinot Noir

As in 2014, the wine was selected from Blocks 10 and 11 and composed of 114 Clone Pinot Noir. We allowed the clusters selected to ripen slightly longer on the vine prior to harvesting them in the first week of October. Grapes were picked and placed in fermentation bins, whole clusters layered alternatively with destemmed grapes (about 25% whole cluster). After fermentation, the wine was racked into mostly neutral French oak barrels, in order to allow the natural grape and stem tannin to speak.
