Brewer Clifton Pinot Noir Santa Rita Hills 2018

Product description

An assembly of each of the blocks and clones from their estate holdings within the Sta. Rita Hills and predominantly fermented as whole clusters. They have always viewed the stem as an inherent part of the cluster, much like a skeleton within a body. The approach is akin to cooking meat on the bone such as chicken breast on the ribs. The outcome is that the stem’s participation acts like a corset to render the wine sterner and to lift up the fruit aromatic by fermenting largely as whole berries. The tannin architecture in the wine is also largely a stem derivative which substantiates the back of the palate and is more savoury in nature much like tea or soy but has aromas of pomegranate, white tea, and raspberry. Flavours of dried fig, white truffle and ripe cherry.
