Clarice Wine Company 'Garys' Vineyard' Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands 2018

Out of stock

Gary's Vineyard is infamous for the dusty, earthy red fruit it pocesses. This lean and savory Pinot Noir is the newest wine brand to hit the market with Gary's Vineyard fruit. Whole cluster fermentation, juicy fruit, bright acidity and soft herbal notes make this Pinot something to be admired.

The 2018 Clarice Wine Company Garys’ Vineyard Pinot Noir originates in two sections of the Garys’ Vineyard. These sections at opposite ends of the vineyard and are planted on two different root-stocks, and yet owner and wine maker, Adam Lee decided to sample them, pick them, and ferment them as one section—thus assuring that the final wine is a mixture of riper and less ripe fruit. Harvest was on September 17, 2018 and, after a 7 day cold soak, the must was allowed to warm and the juice fermented without inoculation. During this cold soak period, approximately 20 percent of the juice was bled off to concentrate the must. Malolactic fermentation was also spontaneous. Ultimately, a strict barrel selection was com-pleted with only 58% of the barrels making the final blend. The wine was bottled without fining or filtration.
