2017 Palmaris Outer Coastal Plain Pinot Noir
2017 Palmaris Outer Coastal Plain Pinot Noir Reserve
Often referred to as "a white masquerading as red." Soft and subtle in character with mouthwatering notes of oak, candied berries, chai spiced chocolate, and violets. Supple and bright with a nuanced, medium-long finish. Superbly flavorful and enticing.
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 second year American and French oak for a period of one year.
