Pinot Noir-2015 Pisoni Vineyard
2015 Pisoni Pinot Noir
Gary Pisoni is the iconic grower whose Pisoni Vineyard Pinot Noir has brought worldwide attention to the Santa Lucia Highlands. Planted with renowned “Pisoni clone”, this unique vineyard produces amazing Pinots which can rival the best red Burgundies. We are particularly honored to be among the select few to receive fruit from Gary Pisoni.
The robe of our 2015 Pisoni is a beautiful, deep crimson-red. On the nose our 2015 Pisoni exudes classic notes of ripe, red fruits accented by hints of toasty oak spice. The palate is very intense and full-bodied with delicious flavors of black plum and ripe boysenberry. As always with Pisoni Pinot, this wine is built to age or can be enjoyed in its youth.
Picking date: September 8th, 2015.
Appellation: Pisoni Vineyard, Santa Lucia Highlands.
Fermentation: All our grapes are hand-picked and sorted at the winery for maximum quality. They are destemmed and gently pumped into small fermenters, each with a different yeast, and hand punched or pumped twice daily until fermentation is complete. The solids are then pressed and the wines aged in French oak barrels for ten months before final blending and bottling.
