Cardwell Hill Estate
|Number Per Case||
Cardwell Hill Cellars proudly releases their fifth vintage of Pommard Block Pinot Noir. Fifteen barrels were selected by the winemaker for their intensity of color and fullness of flavor. This wine was destemmed, cold soaked for 50 hours and then fermented at cool temperatures not to exceed 80F. The cap that develops in open top fermenters was punched down twice daily. Next the wine was fed by gravity from the fermentation deck into the barrel room. Following malolactic fermentation, the wine was racked from the lees. It was aged in Sequin Moreau barrels for a total of tweny-one months.
Smooth and supple with a firm feel to the berry, and smoky flavors that glide into a gentle finish. Drink now through 2021. 375 cases made.
