Description

Twomey Anderson Valley Pinot Noir 2018

Twomey Anderson Valley Pinot Noir provides a unique expression of the whole region. Dark ruby colour. Kirsch, black raspberry and rich black truffle aromas waft from the glass. Dry and full-bodied palate that is focused and complex. Supple mouthfeel with layers of fine tannins, providing great structure. An elegant, restrained style with fresh cherry, blackberry, orange peel and dark spice flavours complemented by earth and gardenia floral notes. 

Fun fact: The first vintage for this wine came out in 2007 and was produced solely with fruit from Ferrington Vineyard. 

100% Pinot Noir. The vines grow in the cool and foggy Anderson Valley AVA, which experiences daily diurnal shifts and thus has the ability to produce wines of restraint and finesse. The fruit comes from Ferrington Vineyard, Middle Ridge Vineyard and Twomey's Monument Tree vineyard.

Fermentation with 37% whole cluster. The wine ages for 14 months in 100% French oak barrels, 24% new.

Ageing potential: Enjoy for up to 10 years with proper cellaring
