Harvested from the high elevations of Luminous Hills Vineyard, our 2016 Pinot Noir includes three different clones from three different blocks, grown on both volcanic and sedimentary soils. These individual factors work together to create a delicate bodied Pinot with layered complexity. The Pommard clone on Willakenzie sedimentary soil serves as the foundation, offering a velvety and fleshy mouthfeel with supporting black fruit character. Co-fermented in a Puncheon barrel, the majority of contrasting red fruit notes are found from the volcanic soils of clone 777; while the Dijon clone 667, grown on the steepest, eastern block of Luminous Hills, provides underlying baking spices and bountiful acidity, with just a touch of whole cluster fermentation. Recommended drinking window: 2024 to 2028.
