Pinot Noir is an incredibly versatile red that pairs well with a variety of different dishes. Pair with roasted chicken, turkey dinner and anything involving pork! It also pairs well with mushroom risotto, cured meats and a variety of different cheese, terrines and pâtés.
Originating from two separate blocks in the Lowrey Vineyard on the St. David’s Bench, the 2018 vintage was a cooler summer and grapes harvest were in terrific shape with delicate nuanced flavours and great balance.
Hand-picked grapes were destemmed and cold soaked for two days prior to being allowed to warm up and begin fermentation. Approximately 15% of the volume was fermented as whole clusters with stems. Following a total maceration time of 17 days, the grapes were gently pressed off and racked into barrel, where malo-lactic fermentation took place. After aging fifteen months in premium French, the wine was racked from barrel and bottled without fining or filtration
