Technical Info

Fermentation

All of the fruit was hand sorted and destemmed. Fermented in small lots with five days of cold soak to increase aroma and color, the peak temperatures reached 90 degrees. The fermenters were aerated or manually punched down twice a day (for 12-20 days) before undergoing a 7 day post-fermentation maceration to increase structure and length. This wine was aged in French oak barrels (50% new), for 20 months. It was racked and bottled by gravity without filtration or fining and was aged in bottle for five months before its release. Alcohol is 13.5%. Finished pH is 3.73.

Vineyard

This Pinot noir is crafted exclusively with fruit from Ponzi’s LIVE Certified Sustainable Aurora Vineyard.

Winemaker's notes

This expressive and changing nose shows crushed rose petal, Mexican chocolate, cracked black pepper, Herbes de Provence and maple syrup. The elegant mouth balances the fruit sweetness nicely with broad and lengthy tannins tinged with smoked salt.
