Winemaker Notes

Pinot noir, originally from Burgundy, is renowned for its bright red fruit flavors combined with spicy elements and subtle herbaceous & earthy notes and moderate, smooth tannins & acid. At Wise Villa, our Pinot Noir combines the best of European tradition & American technique. The 2019 vintage had a hot summer with a cool fall, allowing the Pinot Noir to reach full ripeness slowly while retaining fresh fruit & acidity. After hand-picking the grapes, we destemmed but left the berries whole, resulting in partial carbonic maceration (an internal metabolic fermentation which produces candied fruit flavors). We then fermented this wine on the skins in stainless steel tanks at a cool temperature of 65F for 3 weeks, including a 3 day cold soak and extended maceration. This extended skin contact ensured good color, spice and earthy flavor. We aged this wine on 35% new French and American oak and cherry wood. 100% sur lies aging and battonage (stirring of the yeast lees) contributed extra creamy, pastry flavors. The final wine is deep, rich and full of fruit, spice and vanilla notes.
