Notes & Pairings

While I often eschew Pinot Noir in the portfolio given the glut of it in the market, it is a good way to make a point for a place offering something special when we all know the grape so well. Two thirds come from the Gereg Vineyard (1 spray for all of 2018) and one third comes from a new vineyard (virgin vintage!) planted in 2015. Open vat fermented and then a year in tank. Aromatic, elegant, decent skin tannins, and a volcanic smoky/briny edge.
