Del Rio Vineyard Pinot Noir 2021
Beautiful balance and finesse is the signature of our Del Rio Estate Pinot Noir. Bright ruby in color, this wine is teeming with juicy flavors of spicy red cherry and aromas of cassis. Mouth watering tanginess layered with a soft touch of toasty oak that drives home the lingering finish in this Burgundian inspired Pinot Noir. After de-stemming, the Pinot Noir grapes are transferred into stainless steel vats for an initial cold soak of a few days. When the fermentation starts the wine undergoes methodical aeration at moderate temperatures in order to extract soft tannin and color. Finally when mouthfeel objectives are reached the grapes are gently pressed and barreled down in French oak. Aged for 10 months in 25% new oak.
