2014 Outer Coastal Plain Pinot Noir Reserve
The grapes used in the production of this wine were 100% Pinot Noir estate grown at the Winery's Flittertown Road Vineyard. The grapes were hand harvested at a point of maturity consistent with reserve quality. The grapes were crushed and fermented in contact with their skins for a period of 10 days with a yeast that promotes forward fresh fruit characteristics. A malo-lactic fermentation was simultaneously initiated. After the completion of fermentation, the wine was transferred to 2nd year American and French oak for a period of one year. Pinot Noir is often called a "white wine masquerading as a red" soft and subtle in character.
