Description

DeLoach Vineyards EstateĀ Pinot Noir 2016

The ultimate expression ofĀ the Russian River terroir, the 2016 Estate Vineyard Pinot Noir opens with aromas of raspberry and candied orange peel with hints of anise. Luscious flavours of strawberry, Santa Rosa plum and ripe cherry are balanced with an earthy note of black tea and hint of baking spice.

Planted on Huichica clay loam soil, our Estate has eight blocks of Pinot Noir with a unique combination of clone and rootstock. The Estate Pinot Noir is made using all of our eight estate clones 115, 828, Swan, La Tache, Calera and Mt. Eden, 777 and 23. This combination of clones showcases the ideal expression of the estates terroir and were fermented in individual lots with native yeasts in open top fermenters, basket-pressed and aged on lees before being blended together.
