Pinot Noir Golden Retreat, 2020
Shipped and sold by SpearHead Winery
This is a rich wine with aromas of dried thyme, cocoa, and dense black fruit. Hints of cured meat hide behind complex layers of dark berry compote, plum, and chocolate. The wine is well balanced with a sticky caramel finish. Enjoy now or cellar up to 8 years.
Winemaking: Pinot Noir clones 667, Pommard, 115 and 777 are each hand harvested as ripening is reached. The grapes are destemmed and cold soaked for approximately 5-7 days prior to fermentation. Fermentation begins spontaneously and the total time on skins is 16-21 days. After gentle pressing, the wine is aged for 13 months in French oak barrel (25% new) and undergoes a spring malolactic fermentation.
Residual sugar: 0.75 g/L
