2020 Vine Hill Pinot Noir
Grapes were picked by hand early each morning into small bins and hand-sorted before a gentle destemming. During the four-day cold soak and the eight-twelve-day fermentation, the wine was punched down by hand in small, open-top fermenters. Once ready, the wine was gently pressed using a basket press and gravity-racked into barrels. The aging process for our Pinot Noir utilizes a regimen of one-third each new, once-used, and twice-used French oak. After aging in a barrel for fourteen months, the final blend was assembled for bottling on December 8, 2021.
