32 Winds Hirsch Vineyard Pinot Noir 750ML
The Hirsch Vineyard Pinot Noir displays flavors and aromas of tart black cherries, black raspberries and freshly grated nutmeg. It has a rich full texture, a lovely underlying minerality and excellent natural acidity.
The high elevation vineyard sees approximately 14 hours of sun versus 10 hours at below the fogline, thus allowing long hours of unmitigated sunlight late in the season when tannins are evolving.
The grapes were hand-harvested, destemmed into open-top fermenters, with daily manual punch-downs. This is the best method to gently extract flavor and supple tannins from grapes. The wine was aged for 11 months in French oak barrels approximately 40% of which were new.
