Buena Vista Carneros Pinot Noir 2018
Buena Vista Carneros Pinot Noir has an enticing burgundy colour. Beautiful and bright bouquet of Queen Anne cherry and cranberry with notes of white pepper, cardamom and molasses. Oh so smooth on the palate with elegant flavours of bright raspberry and strawberry. Culminates in a long, lingering red fruit finish.
Classic Californian Pinot Noir from vineyard sites in Carneros. Handpicking of the grapes at night and hand-sorting twice before a gentle destemming. Each lot goes through a cold soaking for a minimum of 5 days to maximise colour and flavour extraction. Fermentation of the must in small open-top fermenters to broaden the texture and complexity of the wine. After an average of 14 days on skins, the wine undergoes a gentle pressing before ageing for 9 months in 12% new French and Hungarian oak, with the balance in one- to two-year-old barrels.
