Winemaker Anthony Austin Notes
This varietally correct Pinot Noir reflects the traditional Burgundian style of silky elegance balanced by depth & complexity. The Dijon Clones were selected for their strong acid structure..The Pommard clone is a bigger grape and very well suited to sparkling wines. Each lot is treated separately, and once harvested; the fruit is destemmed, and lightly crushed by the Bucher press. The juice and skins are then cold-soaked for 5-7 days prior to fermenting on the skins using wild native yeast in small open topped fermenters. The traditional manual punch-down pigeage method is used several times a day during fermentation to intensify the aroma, color & tannin of the wine. After fermentation, the juice is racked off and the skins are put into m ...more... acro-bins and transferred to the press to be gently pressed. The wine is racked and then each lot is matured separately in oak, and then blended and filtered prior to bottling.
