2016 Windemere Pinot Noir, MacGregor Vineyard
This historic vineyard produces a Pinot Noir each year that will keep you coming back for more. The 2016 MacGregor Pinot Noir is dominated by lush notes of strawberry, rhubarb, and cranberry up front. An Old-World winemaking approach allows notes of wet soil and freshly picked wild mushrooms to become apparent as well. Bright acidity is present across the entire palate, paired with beautiful, cherry like fruit tannins, bringing you back for more after every sip.
The fruit was sourced from the MacGregor Vineyard in Edna Valley. After harvest, the fruit was sorted and gently destemmed into small 1.5 ton fermenters. After a 2-3 day cold soak the fermentation began natively. At around 0 Brix, the free run was drained and the must gently pressed directly to barrel where it underwent malolactic fermentation. The wine aged for 9 months in 15% new French oak.
